Been favoring Star Trails lately. Took the family to Redding California to check out Burney falls and the Sun Dial bridge. Added a 2nd layer because the sky seemed a bit boring to me.
The Sundial Bridge is beautiful because of its aqua green, opaque glass deck strips of granite, smooth white imported Spanish tile. The bridge is unique because of its design. The 217-foot pylon acts as a sundial, telling time on a tile covered garden border on the north side of the bridge. The designer of the bridge, world-renowned architect Santiago Calatrava, has said that, to him, the bridge resembles a bird in flight, and symbolizes the overcoming of adversity.
