Jackson Street Bridge is the place to take iconic photos of the Atlanta, Georgia Skyline. Situated above the John Lewis Freedom Parkway this location not only is great to capture the skyscrapers and buildings of the Atlanta cityscape, but also a great place to capture light trail photos. The location is well situated for sunset and sunrise photography. In the evenings the sun sets behind the city from this vantage point and in the morning it rises from behind. This means that in the evenings you can capture spectacular sunsets here and in the morning it is great for capturing a golden hue on the buildings to contrast the cool colours of the ground. We recommend either, but there are tradeoffs for each. In the evenings the bridge has a fair number of cars crossing it, and as they pass over the bridge there will be vibrations affecting your long exposure. Whereas in the morning there are fewer bridge vibrations, but less traffic on the road below to use for light trails. (Atlanta, Georgia, USA)
