I've said before -- only half in jest -- that everyone who lives within 25 miles of this particular bridge must take at least one nighttime photo every year or face criminal penalties.
Since then, other bridges have been lit up. The U.S. Grant Bridge at Portsmouth, Ohio, is a favorite of photographers at night.
The new Bridge of Honor at Pomeroy, Ohio, is illuminated with purple lights, giving it a distinctive look.
The Simon Kenton Bridge -- an old-style suspension bridge at Maysville, Ky., looks good at night. I hope to get down there this winter when night comes early so I can get a shot and get home at a decent hour.
C.R. Neale has gotten a couple of decent photos of the Hi Carpenter Memorial Bridge at St. Marys, W.Va. Alas, there are none to link to.
The Wheeling suspension bridge looks nice all lit up.
And now, according to the Wheeling newspapers, the Market Street Bridge will be lit up when it reopens to traffic before the end of November. That one should be something to see, too.
If anyone has links to good photos of other Ohio River bridges all lit up at night, please send them along.
