Back to Utah for this post. It’s a shot of the cables that once suspended the Dewey Bridge, built in 1916, over the Colorado River. When it was built, the bridge connected a then still remote and isolated southeastern Utah with Grand Junction, Colorado and was the longest suspension bridge west of the Mississippi at the time of its construction. It was the longest suspension bridge in Utah until its destruction by fire in 2008, after being listed in the National Registry of Historic Places and being restored as a foot and bicycle bridge. The steel towers and sturdy cables survived the fire. I decided to lay my camera atop the cables and shoot up them with a shallow depth of field.
