Beneath Tauranga Bridge

This image was taken at the Tauranga Bridge. It’s listed as a class 1 heritage building (http://www.heritage.org.nz/the-list/details/7221) by the New Zealand Heritage. It’s a cable-stayed wooden bridge which spans a distance of 57.8 m. After completion in 1922 it was the longest cable-stayed bridge in the world until 1926.

Technique:
The shooting was done with a 1.50 meter pole which I held straight down the hole in the rotten plank. The lens was mounted with a custom-made bracket. Stitched from four images taken with a Walimex (Samyang) 7.5mm fish eye lens on a Sony QX1. If the equipment had been bulkier, I wouldn’t have been able to put it down the hole. Four images around. The zenith and nadir was retouched by hand in post-processing.
