Mango Sky, Magenta Sky

These images were taken from the pedestrian suspension bridge across the Missouri River connecting Omaha, Nebraska to Council Bluffs, Iowa. The first shot was moments after sunset and the second, fifteen minutes later. This new bridge is fast becoming a very popular site for local walkers, joggers and cyclists, as well as visitors to the area.
Witness wondrous skies from around the world today at Sky Watch Friday.

Well well well ... hello. You have moved a bit East from your usual haunts. I must go and check whether you are still in Wa. as well. People move around.

I like the sound of that bridge. I can only imagine the width of waterway that it straddles. That second shot has amazing colours, Raf.

Isn't amazing what a difference 15 minutes can make. Two beautiful photos. I wish you well with your new blog.

And popular with photographers, too, I should think.
