I like the way this photo turned out. The sun was going down, and I tried to caputure the sky, but got an added bonus of a church steeple, and the decorative sails on the Douglas bridge in downtown Wichita. I like the way the sky fades from blue to gold with the setting sun.

Zooming in

Here's a closer look at part of the school building in yesterday's post.

North High School

North High School glowed in the sunset, as I was taking photos of Minisa Bridge.
Notice the carthalite on the school, too?
Tomorrow, I'll show a close up of the tower to the right.
It was pretty out, but it was very (VERY) cold out.

Close up

I've been familiar with this bridge for years - driving past it (over it) many times. But, because of this blog - and seeing the bridge through the lense of my camera - I'm appreciating the workmanship and artistry of it, more than ever.

"Carthalite incorporates particles of sand, crushed rock and/or crushed glass into cement with mineral pigments." taken from this linked article.....

This is a close up of one of the concrete sections of the Minisa Bridge.
Each of these concrete sections are decorated the same.
I wonder why it's called Minisa bridge - instead of Buffalo Bridge.

Pretty dirty snow

This was seen while looking over the bridge railing. I liked the way the dirt cast it's soft shades of brown over the white snow. I am guessing the dirt was hauled in - in preparation for the upcoming bridge work.

Minisa Bridge

This is what's seen at the ends (on each side) of the Minisa bridge featured in yesterday's photo. These bridge ends are set in an angled position and are seen by all who cross the river via this unique bridge. Imagine this photo at the end of yesterdays stretch of bridge, and you'll get the idea of what it looks like.
