Cool shot, love the sky and all the interesting support cable lines. That sign is great too! 40 persons, they really got that weight measurement thing down to a science!

Cool shot pal :smile:

I see you're liking this lens :wink:

thx Peter...it has it's moments.
for me it needs an up close subject and symetry of the background and then there's nothing like it. I shot the sigma 10-20 on this trip also and the fisheye even blows it away for this stuff

Scary!!! I am afraid of heights but I did manage to come to grips with walking on that bridge..... I flat-out refused to go climbing around on the adjacent rocks in order to see and capture better views!
i crossed once (not this trip) and never again.....just standing there freaks me out...
those rocks are for nuts

It's only an 80 foot drop though! Try the Royal Gorge bridge in Colorado. The drop is nearly 1200 feet. I used to love taking visitors there when I lived in Colorado. Few could walk across.

Nice photo and cool spot. I'll have to have a look at that if I'm ever nearby.

That is a nice subject for the fish-eye view. From the sky, it looks like we didn't quite hit the same place, at the same time, like we have done several times before. However, I was there last saturday.
