Jackson Street Bridge

The Jackson Street Bridge is one of the best places to get a good view of the Atlanta skyline and is famous for being an establishing shot for The Walking Dead television series. During sunrise and sunset, there's often a line of photographers camping out to get a good shot along the side of the road here.

This was a shot that I knew I wanted to take while I was in Atlanta, but I wasn't sure if I was going to have a chance to get it. I was only in the city for a few days and the weather wasn't cooperating. It was rainy and overcast for my entire trip but I made an effort to stop here despite the poor forecast. Fortunately, I think the atmosphere worked nicely for this photo. I was able to get this shot and a couple of others right as it began to rain.
