West Virginia's New River Bridge at Night (editor's title)

The New River Gorge bridge, silhouetted by a near half-moon on the night of March 30, 2012, standing above the CSX main line through southern West Virginia. The 3,030-foot-long bridge was built in 1974-77 near Fayetteville to eliminate 45 minutes of steep, curvy road in and out of the gorge on U.S. 119. The former Chesapeake & Ohio signals on the railroad show clear for a work train, whose headlight helps to illuminate the scene in this 56-second exposure.
