Reflections on 5th Street Bridge
Photographer Hulon Ferris of Spartanburg, who captured the image above, says, “I traversed this bridge daily driving back and forth to work. At the right time of year, the sun is just in the right spot. On Easter Sunday evening, I could see the rays forming so I rushed to the bridge to capture that moment.”
