Photo Spot Details

Lake Havasu City is located in western Arizona and aside from being situated on the border of Arizona and California, it is also known for a certain bridge which was bought from the city of London by Robert P. McCulloch.  The London Bridge’s reassembly was completed in 1971 and has drawn thousands of tourists since then.  I recommend photographing London Bridge during blue hour, which starts about 15 minutes after sunset or 55 minutes before sunrise.  Use a wide angle lens and a tripod so you can use a long shutter speed and keep the ISO low.

    My Daughter captured a FANTASTIC photo of the bridge. I believe it’s definitively post card worthy.
    Where can I find info on getting it published?

      That’s great, Debra! Glad to hear it! I don’t work for Photography Life but I would recommend posting the photo on social media and using hashtags or entering the photo in photo contests. Sometimes this will lead to opportunities to get a photo published.
