Urban landscapes: soaring over the bay


Completed in 1982, this bridge connects the city of Belleville (about 90 minutes’ drive east of Toronto, Canada’s largest city) with Prince Edward County, an island thrust into Lake Ontario. It’s named for a politician who served for 20 years in the Ontario provincial parliament.
The swooping lines of the bridge, along with the concrete rectangular frames it sits on, made it an attractive photo subject (you can see the bridge at dawn here: https://wp.me/p2ccTX-1hi).
For this picture – converted into black-and-white because there was very little colour in the scene – I went for as long an exposure as possible to smooth out the water and allow the clouds to blur as they moved across the sky.
