Confederation Bridge

After all these years, the Confederation Bridge is something I’ve never photographed seriously. A few compact camera shots with each trip over but never at the right times of day. This past Friday had a low tide scheduled about the same time as sunset and with some careful tide watching, I was able to stay out long enough without being trapped ankle deep in water. Which reminds me, I really need to add rubber boots to my gear wish list.

Earlier in the week when this was being planned, I was hoping for one of those nights with storm clouds to the east and a wide open sky for the setting sun to the west. Although the sun only broke through for less than 15 minutes, I suppose wishes do come true. Too bad I failed to also include a vehicle starting the drive across with these long exposures.

Opened in 1997 to replace the ferry, this almost 13 kilometre bridge connects Prince Edward Island to New Brunswick. Everything you would ever want to know about the bridge is on the wikipedia.
