Try road in the afternoon it feels different from the other times, because there is pleasure in itself especially on Sundays.

"National Bridge Surabaya" that's the name of the bridge when I took this photo in April 2013, the city of Surabaya in East Java location. The bridge is an icon of the city of Surabaya in Indonesia because the longest to date. This bridge crosses the Madura strait connecting the two islands of Java - Madura, with a length of about 5,438 meters high and 146 meters (479 feet). Built around the month of August 2003 and construction completed sometime in 2009.

If big winds come this bridge will be temporarily closed until conditions return to normal wind flow. If not in the cap would lead to construction of the bridge rocking and unstable. Many undesirable events on time completion of this bridge such as the loss of some screws and bolts in partial bridge guardrail which eventually led to the iron fence and a rocking bridge collapsed. But services for road improvements soon on the case.

Many other photographers who also took the photo of this bridge including me. When I got here the weather was not so dark and not well lit bridge lights.
While waiting approximately about 5:30 pm I see the opposite shore from the bridge lights have started in the turn but partly because the wait was really dark.

At one edge of the beach there is a big tree and a lot of teenagers were sheltering under a tree while making out with their lover. Moment because this is what I like the perspective of the trees on the beach until the end of the bridge from the island of Java, Madura island to get into the camera, thus forming a strong dimension.

Stupidity I took time objects do not carry a tripod and image results that I've taken mostly out of focus (blur) because it will inadvertently photographed using long exposure. I aim just to the streets looking for a lightweight object.

Sadness and at the same time makes me curious to come back to the site to take again the same object but with adequate preparation. There is minimal preparation such standard tripod is most important to keep any time there is a wonderful moment and will not miss it again.

Thank you all my friends 4 visit, comments and fave's, i really appreciate it.

Hi Shanty, you have done very well to get a photography this good without a tripod.
The bridge is an amazing structure and there is enough contrast between it & the sky to make out the details.
Excellent work my friend.

Hi Shanty this is lovely I really like the bridge detail and you've taken it is wonderful as we have the land to the left and sea and oh my that sky is wonderful. A beautiful
Photograph. Wishing you a great day.
Tonia_74 off ATM. So sorry 2013-05-01 12:54:03
I really like the composition of this beautiful picture, a very well studied composition, characterized by a shot, sought with great accuracy.
M really like the bridge, which seems to cross the bay with a sinuous Lunea, I really like the perspective created by the bridge and I really like the lights that illuminate the bridge, while the nlontananza, masts dsi tower into the sky, an extraordinary visual effect.
Very nice tree in the foreground, beneath which we see the dark silhouettes of a group of people, which under its branches, seem to enjoy this beautiful show that you have perfectly photographed. Very good, my friend!
Memiliki hari yang menyenangkan!
