Walking on Water

Pedestrian Bridge along the Des Moines RiverWalk, Des Moines, Iowa




Biciclyists welcome.
Night lights, directed at the sweeping architecture of the bridge, add to walking-on-water delights.

Love the photos!! But bridges really creep me out....I don't know if I'd have the courage to walk over that one and even stop to take photos along the way!!!
I'd probably run over it as fast as I could and stop for my photos after I were on land:) :)

I enjoyed the guided tour across this bridge. I've been through Des Moines once or twice, but haven't ever stopped. I really like the close ups of bridge details; the lights are neat!
Thanks for the comment. I was interested to see the difference between the green and blue filters on that pink flower!

Great photos! This bridge looks so efficient and strong. No need for repairs at this time.

I wish they would build a few bridges over our river here. They only have little docks to stand on and look across to Florida. Saint Marys is one of the oldest towns in the US, but they've never built bridges to connect the two states. I'd really like to find out why, but I guess that's what keeps up so small and I like that!

Lovely walking with you, thanks!
