Manhattan Bridge in its full glory. Getting to this spot wasn't easy, as I had to walk through slippery rocks covered by snow, where one mistake could cost me a broken leg, but it was totally worth it. I had been planning for a while to photograph the bridge on a foggy day, when Manhattan skyline would be hidden behind it and such an opportunity occurred on the first day of snow this winter in New York. Manhattan Bridge from underneath looks even more spectacular than from any other perspective. It's incredibly massive and the detail is outstanding. When you find yourself there, you can just feel its power. It’s overwhelming. Even the rust adds some character and beauty to this amazing structure, which is over 100 years old. At the time I was shooting, it stopped snowing for a while and the snowflakes captured in the photograph were falling from the bridge when a train was passing by. The noise created by trains running there can be very disturbing, especially when standing right next to them on the bridge, but down there, from certain distance, the sound of steel elements hitting each other becomes just an icing on the cake.
