    "Vista de Calatrava"

     by Jeff Heyer



     Vista de Calatrava, taken from the walking bridge next to the MHH bridge, is three blended exposures obtained during the "blue hour" of sunset, this past January.
    There are many images of this bridge, so getting a unique composition was challenging. Rather than the taking a wider perspective or profile, I used the arch of the bridge to frame Thanksgiving Tower, which resulted in the remaining portion of the bridge becoming a leading line to the eastern skyline of Dallas.
    Santiago Calatrava has built several cable stay bridges in the world, and is in the process of building similar bridges over the Trinity River on I -30 in Dallas.
