The Sagamore bridge, built over the cape cod canal in the 1930's.

The morning after the challenge had been announced it had been drizzling but started to really pour as we approached the bridge. I grabbed my Lumix, Robert Bear_music turned off the windshield wipers, and I managed to get two shots, a more distant one and this.

There had been quite a thread about the Restyle plug about this time. I used it to introduce more interesting colors.

I like these when you get that sheeting action to create the interesting distortions. Reminds me of one I took years ago ....

One of my top picks. Like the distortion created by the rain, yet still make out the bridge and headlights.

The wet windshield shots don't always work but this one does.
That bridge makes for some real nice bokeh.
Well done.
