1410-Sacramento Bridge

Tower Bridge is a vertical lift bridge across the Sacramento River, linking West Sacramento in Yolo County to the west, with the capital in Sacramento County to the east. This is a beautiful old iron bridge built in the Eiffel Tower style of girders and pillars. Painted gold, it sparkles in the late afternoon sun that reflects onto the water. A local tourist pirate ship made a daily run down the river so I waited for the shot as the sun lit the bridge and the ship cruised through.
