Project365: Day 70 - Waterworks Bridge

Day 70 - Waterworks Bridge, originally uploaded by Tim Bungert.

Tried a little photographic experiment today and didn't necessarily get 100% success. I tried to photograph an old steel pedestrian bridge across the Raccoon River at Waterworks Park. The challenge? The amount of light I had to work with was extremely minimal--moon glow and a few stars.

I tried some ultra-long exposures, some light painting, and different angles to catch the available light. I am pretty happy with the final result (30 second exposure, moon light from out of frame to the upper left), but will likely go back during the golden hour around sunset or shortly after later this year to try a different lighting condition here.
