Over the April 26th weekend, my wife, Mary and I visited Charleston, SC. While we were there, I had the opportunity to photograph some interesting places. Friday evening (April 26), I photographed the picturesque Arthur Ravenel, Jr. Bridge at dusk from Patriots Point. Here is one of the photos:

 

The Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, also known as the New Cooper River Bridge, is a cable-stayed bridge over the Cooper River in South Carolina, connecting downtown Charleston to Mount Pleasant. The eight lane bridge satisfied the capacity of U.S. Route 17 when it opened in 2005 to replace two obsolete cantilever truss bridges. The bridge has a main span of 1,546 feet (471 m), the third longest among cable-stayed bridges in the Western Hemisphere. It was built using the design-build method and was designed by Parsons Brinckerhoff. (Source: Wikipedia)


Additional photographs of the bridge from differing angles can be found in the gallery "Charleston".
