Two Rivers Bridge again

Last week, I went over to the Two Rivers Bridge and met up with my friends Matt, Zack and John in order to take some pictures. We met up in the parking lot, which was surprisingly packed on a weeknight. There were a lot of people out there walking the bridge, or riding their bikes across.

We unloaded our various camera gear and set off across the bridge. Zack and I ended up crossing over the bridge and ended up at Two Rivers Park, which sits on a peninsula between the Arkansas River and the Little Maumelle River. We chose a spot that had a nice view of the bridge, with the lingering colors of the sunset. It was also a prime spot for mosquitoes, who set upon us like they were enjoying some sort of buffet.

Some new lights were recently installed on the bridge, and so now the entire span of the bridge is bathed in light. This night, the lights were some sort of purple-pink, but the lights will probably change colors like the nearby Big Dam Bridge. Here is a closer view of the bridge:
The new lights form a long band of color that traverse the bridge - it kinda reminded me of the video boards showing ads that line the sidelines of soccer stadiums.

Here is a view from the other side of the bridge, looking towards Two Rivers Park:

The new lights do make quite a change. Here is a picture of the bridge, back before the lights were installed:
