16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Infamous Colorado Street Bridge From a New Angle

In Pasadena the most iconic bridge (as featured in films such as "La La Land") is the Colorado Street Bridge. When photographing the bridge the most common ways to capture its essence is from the side, showing it's exterior. Another common way is capturing cars moving along the bridge. In this photograph, I decided to look from a different perspective and went beneath the bridge, finding where man meets nature. The lower arroyo canyon meets with the pillars beneath the bridge merging as one entity, with vines that wrap around the structure creating a nature and man made artistic masterpiece.
