"Higgins Bridge"

Cliff Swallows

I ran across this scene while walking about Missoula's river walk this winter. I was struck by the sparce, yet powerful graphical nature of the bridge structure against the stark white sky. I really enjoyed exploring the various textures in the steel of the bridge stucture. These hard, angular lines contrast perfectly with the graceful arching lines of the swallows. This is sort of the perfect man-made archictecture versus natural elements.
