Historic Rail Road Bridge

9 x 12 in. I know nothing about bridges. This is the historic Rail Road Bridge in Joliet @ the Des Plain River. When sketching, I didn't know the bridge was down and weights up. Then a cargo boat went through and realized the bridge was up and weights down. Good thing I got that right. Uff! I had a hard time sketching this. So many bars, very confusing, even I tried to use the binoculars, it was even worse. At the end I had to walk towards the bridge to take a good close look at it to understand what I was drawing and then return to my spot the get the perspective view. At the end, I'm happy with the result.
