I Love New Haven originally published this New Haven bridge post.
The iconic and award winning Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge was lit up in Red White and Blue this Memorial Day Weekend to honor and mourn the U.S. military personnel who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. The bridge additionally gets lit in the patriotic motif for the fourth of July.
I took these photos in Criscolo Park where the Mill and Quinnipiac Rivers merge. I used a tripod to capture the long exposures. After I took the traditional photo I asked myself “what else can I do?”. I started experimenting with longer exposures, aperture, and manually adjusting the zoom for the interesting creative effects.

More about the bridge:
The Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge stands tall and majestic, spanning across a wide body of water with grace and dignity. Named in honor of the brave souls who lost their lives during the infamous attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, the bridge serves as a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made during World War II and a symbol of resilience and unity.
The architectural design of this New Haven bridge is a masterful blend of modern engineering and historical significance. The main span is an impressive suspension bridge, with two grand towers rising from the water’s edge, linked by sturdy cables that support the roadway high above the water.
