Assut de l’Or

If you are familiar with the work of Santiago Calatrava, Assut de l’Or bridge will not be much of a surprise to you. This particular bridge crosses the former riverbed of the River Turia, between the Science museum and Àgora. There are several lanes for traffic in both directions but there’s also a pedestrian bridge in the centre connecting the two banks of the Turia gardens.

This bridge is one of the central features of the City of Arts. It is very hard to miss and can be seen from each end of the park.

Not only is Calatrava known for his architectural designs but also for his unique designs of many bridges in his portfolio.

As this bridge is one of the features of the park, I wanted to create an image where it is also the central feature. By removing any distracting elements in the sky and the placement within the image makes it the focus.

Due to its design, the bridge can be photographed in so many different ways. Your choice of composition and of course edit depends on both your eye, style and most importantly your vision.
