I have a great fascination for bridges, be it medieval and modern. And I love photographing them in the night with all illumination on. Here is one ... During my recent visit to USA I wandered around ... One of the pit stops was Redding. Redding is a city in Northern California. In the heart of the city is Turtle Bay Exploration Park. The park has small museums, arboretum, gardens, running tracks and its Sundial Bridge across the Sacramento river is an icon. This free standing pedestrian bridge is a feast for the eyes. A walk across over the river is refreshing.
Sundial bridge is designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava and the cost at completion was USD23.5 million. The support of the bridge forms the gnomon of a sundial and the accuracy is exact only on June 20th or 21st. Painted in white this bridge is built of steel, glass and granite. One of its kind- Beautiful!
