Sundial Bridge - Turtle Bay (Redding, CA)

From 7/17/2013 to 8/2/2013, I took a road trip from the SF Bay Area to Vancouver, BC, Canada. Half of the trip was spent driving up the west coast. On my trip, I visited many famous places such as Seattle, Butchart Gardens, Mount Rainier, and much more. Obviously I got many coastal shots and many places that isn't as famous. The reason I am posting it now is because the high amount of photos I took equaled a high amount of processing time. I took a bit over 2000 photos on the trip. After stitching the panoramas, compositing the HDRs, and picking out photos from the repeats, I have a bit over 1000 photos to show you guys. The photos will be split into parts. I will link you to the previous and next parts on each post just like I did with my Death Valley National Park photos and my Yellowstone/Grand Teton National Park photos. Hope you enjoy this chain of posts!

Today I have photos Sundial Bridge at Turtle Bay in Redding, CA. These are the last photos from this trip and for this chain of blog posts. I hope you have enjoyed them. Sundial Bridge is a bridge in Redding, CA that crosses over the Sacramento River. The shape of the bridge creates a giant sundial.

This is Sundial Bridge. The bottom of the bridge is made of glass so you can see through it.

 Facing west overlooking the Sacramento River. Took me a while to get Sacramento right... I've been living in California for 13 years now and I noticed I had no clue how to spell Sacramento correctly while labeling my shots for Panoramio. LOL What really screwed me over was the fact that "sacramental" is actually a real word and spell check kept suggesting that instead of the name for the capital city of California.

Looking at the giant cables, I thought they'd make great depth-of-field subjects. Here are 2 abstract shots of the giant cables on the bridge. 

These are all the photos for today and for this trip. I hope you have enjoyed this chain of blog posts. I haven't planned what I will be posting next time. I may start on my photos from my China trip, but I may also do something else. Don't forget to check back! Please don't forget to share with your friends and family members!
