Elongated Patterns

Elongated Shadows

The winter sun’s low angle creates dramatic elongated shadows as the afternoon wanes crossing the McKees Rocks Bridge, a a steel trussed through arch bridge over the Ohio River near Pittsburgh (you get to know bridge types when you live in a city with, well, 446 bridges within the city limits–three more than Venice, Italy–in a county with nearly 3,000 bridges and a state with 22,280 bridges, and that’s not counting the ones shorter than 20 feet that carry local traffic across streams or deep ravines). The double steel arches and criss-crossing trusses make an interesting pattern of light and shadow.
