About Vidyasagar Setu (Bridge):-
Vidyasagar Setu (Bengali: বিদ্যাসাগর সেতু Bidyasagôr Setu), also known as the Second Hooghly Bridge (Bengali: দ্বিতীয় হুগলী সেতু Dbitiyô Hugli Setu), is a toll bridge over the Hooghly River in West Bengal, India, linking the cities of Kolkata (previously known as Calcutta) and Howrah.
With a total length of 823 metres (2,700 ft), Vidyasagar Setu is the longest cable–stayed bridge in India and one of the longest in Asia. It was the second bridge to be built across the Hooghly River; the first, the Howrah Bridge (also known as Rabindra Setu) 3.7 kilometres (2.3 mi) to the north, was completed in 1943. Named after the educationist reformer Pandit Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar, it cost Indian Rupees 3.88 billion to build.
Construction began on 3 July 1979, and the bridge was commissioned on 10 October 1992 by the Hooghly River Bridge Commission. The project was a joint effort between the public and private sectors, under the control of the Hooghly River Bridge Commissioners. The bridge is used by around 30,000 vehicles daily, considerably less than the bridge's capacity of 85,000.

An engineering marvel, ths is an excellent night shot of this fine bridge, the star bursts of lit look really superb in the dark element. I also like how to the right of the bridges tower, Thereis light still in the sky, almost as if the bridge is a portal between
Iight and dark. The overall effect is like the bridge is carrying those on it into a brighter place. Nice symbolism and lovely scene.

Tu as un grand talent pour la photo de nuit. Ici, le pont est un sujet fascinant et forme une belle diagonale dans l'image. J'aime beaucoup la luminosité et le coin de ciel bleu nuit.

Impressive bridge crossing the capture in a good diagonal way
What admire me is the well management of the lights, you obtained clear sparkling stars and golden reflections on the water
Congrats for the quite eye catching capture
