Anzac Bridge, Sydney, NSW, Australia

The Anzac Bridge is the longest span cable-stayed bridge in Australia and it’s spanning Johnstons Bay between Pyrmont and Glebe Island in proximity to the central business district (downtown) of Sydney, Australia. The bridge was completed in 1995 to replace the former Glebe Island Bridge, an electrically operated swing bridge in operation since 1901. It was criticized by some as “over-engineered” because of its size – with seven lanes for traffic. The criticism proved unfounded as the bridge was reconfigured for eight traffic lanes in 2005. The bridge was given its current name on Remembrance Day in 1998 to honour the memory of the soldiers of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who served in World War I. An Australian Flag flies atop the eastern pylon and a New Zealand Flag flies atop the western pylon.

    I like your colorful images from the Australian nature very much.
    Why then comment on this?
    The image has a strong graphic effect. The staves leads the eye to the bright interest point on the pylon. The clouds are in perfect balance witn the bridge.
    No colors needed here. Perfect!
