Bridge Of Angels

I tried three nights in a row to get down by the river to get this shot, but dinner plans and hanging out with non-photographers always prevented me from getting there. So, on our last night in Rome before heading back home, I told my wife I was going to head out on my own to get the shots I wanted without being hassled to "hurry up"...after a late dinner, Tika took a taxi back to the hotel, and I ran off and went running around Rome with my Leica and tripod in hand trying to get to all the spots I could...this was my last stop, and it was so peaceful down by the river and a glorious night (but really black sky)...

Stunning, simply stunning. Glad you were able to get away from other obligations long enough to indulge your itch...

Hi Scotty, I came across this amazing photo thanks to a mention by Owen. I love the bridge and the reflection. Coinsidently my recent blog photo is very similar in subject (a european bridge over water at night) and situation. I also sent my "hurry up wife" back to the hotel while I photographed Lucerne at night. :)

This would be perfect photo for Weekend Reflections. (Weekend Reflections is hosted at Newtown Area Photo) This week's version lasts until 11pm est but we start a new one every Friday.
You are welcome anytime!
