Here are two separate bridges, one cantilevered and one tied-arch, crossing the Mississippi River from LaCrosse, Wisconsin toward LaCrescent, Minnesota, making a profile of opposite curves at their tops. The river is abustle with traffic pushed by towboats moving up to fifteen barges, 150 feet long, and 4 stories high. On the far shore is a necklace of small cottages and boathouses enjoyed for swimming and boating in summer and ice fishing in winter. We've canoed the wild rice fields along the shallow edges where the current is weak and the bottom is muck. We hope someday to travel the river by paddlewheel steamer before they disappear forever. On my very last flight in the Husky I choose to fly maneuvers over it from its beginning down to the airport in LaCrosse. I love this river!
The Mississippi is an industrial highway, a scene of ambitious hard work, carrying people and product to far places. I shot this scene on our anniversary (2009) in LaCrosse where the blue bridges snake between a weather-worn sky above, the dark river beneath. I have a fine version in color but chose to develop this one in sepia to reduce the image to its essence of power and movement.
