Roebling Suspension Bridge

Cincinnati, Ohio before the river
From the Carew Tower Observation Deck
Earlier this year I finally took the time to take some shots of the Skywheel on the Cincinnati Riverfront! This was the first time I had attempted to shoot it and I was hoping to combine it with a favorite pastime, photographing sunset. I have been wanting to return to the Carew Tower Observation Deck to shoot sunset for years. Well, sunset bombed out. Undeterred by a stiff southerly wind thought I'd try my hand out at the Skywheel. I expected it to be a challenge to photograph, and it was. I tried several different settings to see what effects I would get out of the ferris wheel. Though most of my shots were failures I did have one I really liked come out. I just love the pattern of the light and the Roebling Suspension Bridge close by.
