verrazano narrows bridge

Verrazano Narrows Bridge




























driving home from pennsylvania last week, I was lucky the traffic was at a standstill so I could get this shot. I guess that's one way of looking at it because seriously, the traffic was the worst I have seen in a long time. if you'd like to know more about the verazzano narrows bridge please go hereplease pop on over to san francisco bay's daily photo to check out the "sunday bridge series". thanks for hosting louis la veche!

Very cool photo! Great vantage point (can I say that if you are below something??).
I drove the bridge last summer...but it was at night :(
--heading from Rye NY to Delaware coast. I had various ways to go but really wanted to drive that bridge. I got off 1st and drove close to the end of Brooklyn bridge.

PS - I love the name too...Verrazano. I enjoyed reading about it on the link.

That's a really big bridge. I'd like to take a few shots of it myself. It looks like you have plenty of practice at taking shots from your car. :)

What a great shot!
The Verrazano used to mean we were getting close to home. It's a beauty, isn't it?

I like this photo a lot, I love looking at bridges and it is fun to see ones from the East Coast.

Being stuck in traffic can be such a pain! But I'm glad you got this beautiful photo of the bridge :-D

Wonderful perspective!

Bibi said...

This is really a good shot, Lily. I've been over this bridge many a time.

Alexa said...

Well, didn't you just make the most of a bad situation?Like Chuck said . . .
And you got a great photo too!

A very neat view on this bridge. Glad being stuck in traffic produced something nice!

Louis la Vache said...

Super, Lily! You are the first to post an image of this famous bridge in the Sunday Bridge series! A majestic shot this is, too!

Rob said...

What a grand view of this bridge. A familiar name, Verrazano. We toured Verazzano Castle in the Chianti region and there is a relationship between the winery and New York. http://www.verrazzano.com/en/the-castle/

Lovely photo! I guess there is an advantage to being stuck in traffic. Last year we were stuck for almost 2 hours on the stretch of hwy snaking through New York to Massachutes. However, not so nice when you have a car full of cranky children.

Ian said...

Not bad. The way you have balanced the bridge on the tree could be the beginning of a series.

I know those traffic snarls well...one of the reasons I dread going to Staten Island.

Great vantage point and photo though.

Boy, I just caught up with your last several posts! I love the beach at Long Beach, the cows are sweet, that sunset is amazing and I'd like to eat at that restaurant. You caught a great shot of the bridge....

I like the angle you chose for this photo, and the sky makes a nice dramatic background too

Thérèse said...

Such a nice capture!

Been over it many times but I don't think I have ever seen it from this vantage point.

I was walking along the water this weekend and had almost the same vantage point, but sadly, no camera! This is right down the block from me : )
