The colour quality of the bridge photo is excellent,Richard,a lovely shot. Is that stitched btw. or a straight forward wide angle ? Nice capture on the moon in that location.

Excellent shots Richard. That panoramic of the bridge especially.
Hope you haven't forgotton that mission of a moonrise shot between one of the spans. Now that would be awesome  Cool

Thanks for the comments gentlemen. John, I'm still waiting for that old "in the right place at the right time with the right weather" to catch the Moon through the arched span photo. I've been down there dozens of times but just haven't caught it right yet. The mountains are the biggest problem in trying to photograph the Moon in twighlight and yet getting close enough to the arch and still have the bridge in focus. I think I'll have better luck this winter from the levee on the right as the full Moon moves a little further north  and the mountains drop off to the river, I can catch the Moon a little earlier. Trial and error!!
