Aurora Inverted, Seattle, Washington

Aurora Inverted, Seattle, Washington

It's often days, weeks, or even more than a year before I manage to post photos I've taken, but tonight I decided to just jump straight into something I took, just about 1 hour ago. This evening I decided to go back to the Aurora Bridge in Seattle, not far from my home. My intent was actually to try some large format night photography (which I attempted, but won't know the results of for quite some time).

After my large format shooting I positioned myself directly beneath the bridge as best I could and shot at a wide angle to capture as much of the span as I could. Before cropping this image I actually captured the other side of the canal this bridge spans and some of the reflection in the water. But for vertical compositions I tend to prefer a 5x4 aspect ratio, and cropped this image accordingly. Given the already abstract nature of the image, I decided I actually preferred it rotated 180 degrees. As a result, the bridge overhead appears at the bottom of the frame, and the expanse across the canal reaches towards the top of the frame.

I'm sure I'll get back to posting Rainier shots again shortly.
