A closer look was in order. I started at the Kennedy bridge, a little too early in the evening. The LED lights were overwhelmed by ambient light. I walked on towards the Bay.
|Brorein Bridge, N. side.|
The sun had dipped below some clouds by the time I got to the Brorein bridge via the new section of Riverwalk. In the shade, the lights were beginning to work their magic.
Keep in mind that these LEDs are turning from one color to another, blue, lavender, red, etc. This shifts the feel of these large structures constantly. On the left is the same view as above, only a minute later.
The Crosstown is also lit. From the ground, this tall overpass bridge looks much bigger than it used to. Against the evening sky, the view is stunning.
|Platt St. Bridge|
The Platt Street Bridge is low enough to the water to see plenty of light mirrored on it. This is from the Convention Center. The light bars on the right are projected onto the bridge.
Some of the light gets to the topside of the bridge, lighting the hand rails.
This is looking back at the Crosstown overpass/bridge from the Platt St. bridg, with the City lights in the background.
Here we see the new Riverwalk section, looking back at downtown. About midway up the left edge, one can see the Kennedy Bridge lighted. It is a pity that there's chain link fencing everywhere, blocking the view. I had to stick the camera lens through it.
