This October 15, 2011 in Fayetteville, WV they had Bridge Day. They celebrate the massive bridge over the New River Gorge. They shut down 4 lanes of traffic, set up festival type booths for trinkets, food, drinks (non-alcoholic), popular and unpopular causes and let people walk on, look off, rappel off, and jump off the bridge.
The bridge is 876 ft. off the water and my photos were shot from various positions on the river. (I coordinated a white water trip down the river to coincide with the observing the last hour of activities.)
I calculate that I was about 1000' from the launch pad. I shot these with a Canon 7D and the 100-400 L zoom. Shot in RAW and slightly processed in Lightroom 3. The first photo was taken at 2:13:47 PM and the last one at 2:14:00. PM (Photos were at ISO 640 5.6 aperture preferred)
