Linking the states

I-5 bridges linking Portland, OR to Vancouver, WA, spanning the Columbia River. I had never seen the bridges from this perspective and I thought it would lend itself well to a pano. It worked and I liked the monochrome version better. Added a little nostalgia I thought. :-)

Having driven this bridge many times, it's cool to see it from this perspective. And yes, I like the monochrome version best!

Yes, very nice panorama! The lift bridges look great in monochrome, very industrial!

Impressive bridge : the way you took the picture gives such a sensation of gigantism...

I like the patterns in the bridge - so is the border in the middle of the river and is that where the bridge changes design?

yes I think the b&w is good for photos like this.

Love the panoramic view of the bridge, and it turned out beautifully in black and white. You have given up a wonderful landscape to study.

Love the black and white -it gives such a typical expression of our time (looking from a historical viewpoint) -this is a keeper!

I love what you have done. It's like a cross between the old time and the modern.
