Picture of the Day: Nighttime at the I-35W Bridge

Once again, today’s picture is a case of “I didn’t think it was good at the time…”

This is the I-35W bridge over the Mississippi River at Minneapolis. The bridge is usually lit up, but the range of colors was a one night only event celebrating diversity. I went down to take some pictures, and after seeing some truly spectacular shots, despaired that my shots were, well, worthless.

Not quite so, so I have been told. People seem to think the reflections in the water truly make this and its sister shots come alive. What do you think?
