Photographer: Martin Chandrawinata
Title: San Francisco/Oakland Bay Bridge, California, USA

Description: A Hanna Group construction engineer and a native of Indonesia, Chandrawinata took this photo in early morning as workers prepared for the impending installation of the self-anchored suspension bridge's eastern span main cable. It is the crown jewel of a more than $6-billion replacement project. The fog inspired the idea for the photo and stirred a bit of nostalgia as well. "When I reached the office, I noticed how foggy it was, so I went to the field, up to the tower top and shot this worker on a catwalk," he says. "I like the early morning fog ... it reminds me of being on the mountain when I was little."

Selected from hundreds that were submitted, this year’s “Images of the Year in Construction” features photographs that best capture the mood and flavor of construction during 2012. Read the full story
