About the Moment: I try to make two photography trips in the Columbia River Gorge NSA every fall. Each time, I stop at this bridge and check it out. Some years, the color of the leaves is poor, or the pavement is too dry - this year was just right.
This bridge is highly photographed and can sometimes be seen in national advertising campaigns - typically for automobiles.
Time of Year: Late October.
Filters, Effects, Digital Manipulations: A polarizing filter was used to reduce glare and saturate color. No digital manipulations were used to produce this photograph.
