There is a small section of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge with a trestle. Each time I’ve passed over this section I’ve wanted to photograph it, but the area where it attaches to land is part of a nature reserve and there is no access, except, perhaps by boat.
On our way home from Cape Charles a couple of weekends ago I persuaded my husband to pull off at a vista point at the southernmost tip of Virginia’s Eastern Shore. From there, albeit from a distance, I had my opportunity to shoot the trestle section of the bridge. Bonus points that we happened to catch it at sunset!
The sky was overcast, but there was a break in the clouds at the horizon, perfectly silhouetting the bridge with a beautiful, colorful backdrop.
The vista point also has several telescopes for checking out the bridge, passing ships, and wildlife. I photograph them for their “faces”.
As you can see, the view from this vista point is lovely. I’ll definitely stop there again to take in the view.
