Not So Pedestrian Sunset - Salem, Oregon - USA

The beautifully constructed Peter Courtney Minto Island Pedestrian Bridge in Salem, Oregon. Referred to as the "taco bridge" by Salemanders. A pedestrian bridge, but not so pedestrian sunset.

I'd been telling myself for a while that I wanted to capture a sunset at this wonderful architectural landmark connecting two of Salem's city parks. On this day, I noticed some beautiful cloud cover, and thought there would be a good chance of capturing what I'd envisioned.

I was certainly not disappointed by this display, which delivered the feeling of awe & wonder I attempt to convey through my work. Camera in hand, I shuffled around quite a bit, until that familiar feeling came over me, signaling the perfect spot & moment to capture the joy & glory of this Not So Pedestrian Sunset.
