There is an amazing trestle bridge just north of the Des Moines area in Central Iowa. The town is called Madrid, but it isn’t pronounced like the Madrid you and I know – they pronounce it Maadrid, which is a little odd but okay. I’ve been up to this trestle bridge a few times in the past, but with my new equipment I am able to get into tight spots from great distances, which I can appreciate in a shoot like this. There’s nowhere to park, for miles. I’ve never actually walked the bridge, but I hope to some day, once the snow melts. Anyway, here’s a quick video of my time up there the other day. I’ll post a few pictures here as well.
This is the High Trestle Bridge, Northwest of Des Moines, IA. It was a beautiful day today, and with the low winds in the Des Moines area I set out to get this shot. It made the local news, so it was worth the 30 minute drive and the hard work – but it turned out nice. I’m happy with it.
