This shot is looking east with the Big Four Bridge in the background. The iron structure the ironworkers are building will be placed inside one of the steel cylinders that are in the righthand side of the image. There is a completed one on the barge behind the one where they are working. The hexagonal piece on the end is a jig to align the steel rebar while they assemble it.

This image is a single frame that was edited in Aperture 3 and Topaz Adjust. I wanted to capture the early morning fog and the light as the sun was coming up. The early morning on the river is a peaceful quiet time before the sun gets up in the sky and the temperature starts rising.

Topaz Adjust will be 50% off ($24.99) from September 9th through September 30th with this promo code: septadjust Topaz Adjust is one of their most popular plug-ins and doesn’t go on sale very often so if you haven’t tried it yet this will be a great opportunity to get it and save some money as well. Topaz Adjust is one piece of software that I find indispensable in my work and have been using for years now.

      1. Good to hear from you, how are you doing?
        I live in Barbados, one beautiful island in Caribbean, and yes we drive on left hand side.
        Have a great weekend!
