Photographer's Note

Hello all,
sunset at the Sundial Bridge in Redding, Ca. I was standing along the shore of the Sacramento River looking across at the pedestrian bridge. This year is the 10th anniversary of the bridge opened on July 4th, 2004.
"The Spanish architect and engineer Santiago Calatrava conceived the Sundial Bridge’s unusual design, his first free-standing bridge in the United States." "The cable-stayed structure has an inclined, 217 foot pylon constructed of 580 tons of steel. The deck is made up of 200 tons of glass and granite and is supported by more than 4,300 feet of cable. The structure is stabilized by a steel truss, and rests on a foundation of more than 115 tons of steel and 1,900 cubic yards of concrete. The McConnell Foundation, a private, independent foundation established in Redding in 1964, funded the majority of the bridge’s $23 million cost."(http://www.turtlebay.org/sundialbridge)
