The Foresthill Bridge Like You’ve Never Seen It Before!

by Sherri on November 3, 2009


The famous Foresthill Bridge, Auburn, California. It was processed using a combination of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 and Adobe Photoshop CS3.

What: The famous Foresthill Bridge.

Where: North Fork of the American River, Auburn, California.

When: A couple of weeks ago.

Who: Jeff, our dog Cocoa & I were taking a Fall hike.

How: The Foresthill Bridge was reflecting in a mud puddle. I thought that was pretty cool. So I took a series of photos of the mud puddle. This was one of my favorites.

Then, in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2, I rotated the photo so it was upside down and now you see the bridge right side up in the mud puddle.

Did anyone guess how this image was captured, before I revealed the answer?

I LOVE this photo. At first I looked at it and kind of went, blah, but then I kept looking and realized what it was and how it was taken. I think that any image that makes you think and take a second look is exciting to look at.

I’ve tried to get the same kind of image with different subjects. After looking at yours, I think I know my problem and will attempt it again.

Seriously, GREAT image.

Thanks a lot Mark! I’m glad you took a second look and you were able to change your opinion of the photo. Hopefully, I will get to see your next attempt at shooting into a mud puddle.

I agree with the first comment; at first, it looked like you captured this from below, as if framed by ice. That this is a reflection makes the shot all the more interesting!
