This is the Bridge from an Ariel view.  This is not my photo.  It also shows the inlet to the Indian River Bay with the Delaware State Park on the left and right.

This is the Bridge all lit up at night.  I was told by a fellow photographer that I should take a trip over to the Bridge and shoot it at night.  I had no idea that it did this.  So, I packed up my photo gear and went over here.  This was the first time I tried some night shots using my Nikon D7000.  It came out pretty good, despite my first try.  The Red & Green lights in the center of the span show which area the boats should come in the Inlet.  Green is the center of the Inlet.

For this shot, it took me 4 different try’s to get it just about right.  I’m told that I don’t have my settings quite right, but I’ll keep trying as time goes by.

Here’s another shot of the Span.
