Bridge Update

This is a picture of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge taken February 10, 2005. The new bridge towers are expected to be at over 350 of their 510 foot total height by the end of the month of February. They are made of marine-grade concrete and are angled slightly to increase compression strength between the cross-members that will be supporting the bridge horizontally.

The photo was taken at 5:01PM with a Nikon D70 Digital Camera, with the kit 28-70mm lens. The shot was focused manually with emphasis on the near bridge pillar. The effective focal length was 105mm with an F-Number of 7.1.
