Bridge Over Troubled Water

Johanne Brunet

Candiac, Canada

Artist's Description

The Félix-Gabriel-Marchand bridge spreads over the Richelieu river to link the cities of St-Jean-sur-Richelieu and Iberville, in Quebec, Canada.

I was standing, frozen, on the shore right under the bridge on the Iberville side of the river to make that shot.

I had to stop a few times to let my fingers thaw and my camera was protected from the elements by a plastic bag.

You might think it’s raining, looking at the picture, but in fact, it was a heavy snowfall, probably the last of the season. The slow shutter speed created a motion blur and made it look like rain.

You can see all four shots worth keeping that I made on that day in a journal entry over here
