Bridge over the River Vistula 3 by mirek

History of this bridge inspired me. It was built in 1857 and it was a part of Paris – St. Petersburg Route. The Bridge was destroyed during WWII and restored in 1946-1947. This photo was taken quite long ago, September 2010. My goal was to show beauty of this old construction and fascinating show of light and dark. On that day it took me long to find a moment without any cars and passerby’s in the frame. It was an early morning and as the sun was climbing quickly in the sky I was getting more and more nervous if I’d still be able to catch these long shadows. But I waited patiently and I finally took that shot.
