This bridge, the third longest cable-stayed bridge in the Western Hemisphere, links Charleston with the neighboring town of Mt. Pleasant via US Route 17. The bridge is two miles long, and spans more than 1,500 feet of the Cooper River. Opened in 2005, its diamond shaped towers soar 186 feet above the river. It has eight lanes, four in each direction, plus a 12-foot wide bicycle and pedestrian path. It was built to withstand hurricanes and earthquakes. I travelled its length several times, and this image, made through the front window of a moving car, best captures its striking design. I converted the image from color to black and white to accentuate the rhythmic patterns of the wires and silver clad towers, contrasting them to the rain clouds that fill the sky beyond.
