Firestone, Colo. The John James Audubon Bridge, designed and built by Flatiron Corp. and opened in May across the Mississippi River in Louisiana, is the longest cable-stayed bridge in North America. The $348-million project, built for the Louisiana Dept. of Transportation and Development, joins the parishes of Pointe Coupee and West Feliciana in south central Louisiana. “As a photographer, I’m drawn to patterns of light,” says photographer Joe Dunn of Joe Dunn Arts. “The beauty of the architecture and the form of the bridge is awe-inspiring, and I wanted to show that.” Dunn used a Canon 5D MarkII camera with a Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 L series lens set at f/5.6, 1/1,000 sec and ISO 100.
