My best efforts at a history of this bridge indicated that it was erected in the 1930’s. This bridge was demolished one year after this photo was taken.
This old rusting bridge crossed the interface between the Florida Everglades and civilization. Located just west of Homestead General Aviation airport, this once was used to access farm lands and was part of the steady march of humanity to the West. In recent years, efforts to restore the natural flow of water through the Everglades South to Florida Bay have resulted in the closure of this bridge. It now can only be crossed by foot, and has become a canvas for graffiti artists. This picture was taken on a windless morning, leaving the canal as still as glass. My favorite part of this image is how the HDR process brings out such detail in the reflection of the underside of the bridge in the water, aided by the sunlight reflecting off the water onto the bottom of the bridge.
