Benson Bridge, Multnomah Falls

In my effort to sketch and paint a few of the beautiful PNW bridges, how could I not include the Benson Bridge at Multnomah Falls. Oregon.com mentions that “the bridge spans the falls at the first tier’s misty base. Standing on the bridge you have a perfect view of the top tier’s full 542-foot height and a knee-wobbling vantage point over the second tier’s 69-foot drop!”

I’m now thinking I will do this again, but in a portrait orientation to highlight the height of both the falls and the bridge. But then, this might be more about the falls than the bridge. Food for thought.

I think I’d rather see this image in a more photographic form. After all, you don’t get much detail in the way you’ve posted it. I’d like to see it reposted. I am a collector of bridge images, and I have some of the Verranzano Bridge in New York before the cables were added.

You mean like this?

You’ve got it, It’s nice to see were you’re coming from!

Another nice one, Doug. Like the original, too
