Brand New Day by Ricardo Mateus 500px.com/ricardo_mateus “This long exposure was captured at sunrise beside the highly photogenic Vasco da Gama Bridge. This impressive structure is the longest bridge in Europe, at 17.2-kilometres long, and was built for the Lisbon World Exposition in 1998. I chose this particular angle and composition to give the effect of a never-ending bridge that curves away into infinity.” CKnon EOI 1100B with CKnon ED 17-S0mm R/SG lens.
