The bridge between night and day

Hey everybody! I’m doing a much better job of getting myself out the door before sunrise at the moment. Let’s see if I can keep it up for a bit. I have to admit, it’s just amazing to be out in the quiet edges of the day, watching the night give way to day. I shot this photograph from the south end of the old Diestelhorst Bridge. Named for Gotlieb Diestelhorst, whose family owned the land where it was built, the bridge (639 feet long, 24.3 feet wide and nine spans) was completed in 1915. The Diestelhorst was the bridge for automobiles and the first reinforced concrete bridge built across the Sacramento River in Northern California. The bridge was closed to automotive traffic in November 1997 and it’s today listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
