Historic South Carolina

Here is a view from beneath the cables of the Ravenel Bridge in Charleston, South Carolina. The Arthur Ravenel Bridge over the Cooper River opened in July 2005. This eight-lane, cable stayed bridge with two diamond-shaped towers allows clearance for ocean freighters to access the port of Charleston, South Carolina. The bridge connects downtown Charleston to Mount Pleasant. It is the third longest cable-stayed bridge in the Western Hemisphere.
