Image description

I love bridges. Plus the idea of a massive bridge disappearing over the horizon, as if going on forever, is magnetic to me. Awesome but also frightening in some way. If this bridge actually existed I don't think I could cross it.

And bridges have symmetry. Left to right, reflective symmetry in each span, repeated spans (not sure that's symmetry actually), and even the components (piers, girders etc.) have symmetry. There's shed-loads of symmetry in a bridge.

Even better, I'd already made a bridge model - this one - for an entry way back in 2009. No one liked it very much! Heck so what, try again I say.

Description of how this image was created

The bridge is CSG: simple geometry made complicated by repetition. It was great to have an excuse to use it again.

The whole of the sky, sun and clouds are a single sky-sphere with overlaying POV-Ray patterns.

The sea is an iso-surface.
