Excellent angle. I like the way it crosses the water like a millipede.

Thanks, Jack and Pnina. I cloned out the power lines and poles on this version, but not on the other, black-and-white version. The low clouds near the horizon are from a distant off-shore tropical system which never made it to storm status. It did, however, keep the flow onshore, resulting in these somewhat higher-than-normal tides. --Lannie

Thanks, Bill. This is the only way in except by boat, but the bridge is nothing special as viewed from the road, and it is pretty short. You were probably looking off to your left to where St. Helena Sound widens and opens into the Atlantic Ocean. This was the very last bridge on the way down from Beaufort. The ocean is just over the line of trees on the other side of the narrow channel, but the road makes a hard right just beyond the bridge and runs down the length of Hunting Island toward Fripp Island. --Lannie

My first impression Lannie was as well of centipede.... like a heavy reptile....;-)) Well composed, and exposed.

Hi Lannie, I like this panorama shot. Nice colours. I read that this bridge isn't actually such a long one. Well, I don't know how you have fixed it, but my first impression when I saw this shot was, that it's a pretty long construction. So Lannie, you have fooled me by choosing an interesting/deceived angle. Many Greetings, Ada:)

what a great shot....I am scratching my head and trying to remember if I drove over this when I visited Hunting Island, I am not sure.

Landrum Kelly
Thanks, Ada. There are some pretty big bridges in the coastal part of South Carolina. This one is small by comparison, both as to length and height. Good to hear from you again. I hope that your wrists are better. --Lannie
