Chesapeake Bay Bridge Walk - Photos 9-12

The Chesapeake Bay Bridge has been the site of an annual Bay Bridge Walk for the last 27 years.

Here are the four photos, 9 through 12, on the series that started on my article Chesapeake Bay Bridge Walk.


Above, the main suspension span, which I already described in detail a couple photos previously. I took this photo with a 50mm (1.0x) regular lens, while all other of my "Chesapeake Bay Bridge Walk" photos were taken with a 135mm (2.7x) moderate telephoto lens. This photo shows well just how massive that the reinforced concrete anchorages are on the westbound bridge. Click on the photo for a larger version (84K).

Eastbound motorists in the left lane have this view for fleeting seconds. The main spans are about a mile away, the Eastern Channel spans are about 2-1/3 miles away, and the Western Shore is about 3-2/3 miles away. From about Memorial Day to Labor Day, the Bay is chocked full of pleasure boats. The bridge walk takes place before Memorial Day. Click on the photo for a larger version (83K).
