Photographer: Victor Davila
Submitter: Figg Engineering

Davila, a Figg segmental geometry manager, took this photo of the $150-million, 5,910-ft-long Susquehanna River Bridge, Pennsylvania's first concrete segmental crossing, while standing on a jet-ski in the river. "I wanted to illustrate that the bridge is in harmony with the river by showing the symmetry created by the bridge and its mirror image in the calm river waters. For this reason, I wanted a perspective from the water, which meant using my jet-ski to find the perfect angle."
