Headed to the Bottom

The Downtown Tunnel links Norfolk and Portsmouth Virginia. This is the westbound tunnel, the first of two two-lane tunnels, it opened in 1952. The two-lane Downtown Tunnel replaced an automobile ferry system and in conjunction with the Berkley Bridge, was the first fixed crossing directly between Portsmouth and Norfolk across the Elizabeth River. Today's bridge and two tunnel system carries more than three million vehicles a month. Nowhere else in Virginia can you cross a drawbridge and then directly enter a tunnel. This tunnel had it's ceiling removed last year, revealing the full curved height of the tube. Canon 5D Mark II, 1/125 sec @ f/4.0, ISO 1600, 85mm prime lens.

Scotty, Warp Speed Please!

- I wish I could jump to warp speed when traveling through the Midtown tunnel, the heaviest traveled two-lane road east of the Mississippi. This is the closest I'll get to that experience. Canon G11, 1/3 sec @ f/5.6, ISO 400.

Tunnel Vision

- Robert peering down his make believe tunnel. Getting a 5 year old male child to hold still for a full half second exposure is just plain luck. It was pretty much the max of his attention span today. Well come to think of it, that's pretty the max of my attention span everyday. Canon G11, 0.6 seconds @ f/3.2, ISO 800.

The Tube

Tunnel Crawl

From 2010 Blog
- Brake lights abound as I did the tunnel crawl last Thursday afternoon coming back from Hampton Virginia through the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel - the HRBT to locals. I was headed east on I64 on the down slope toward the bottom of Thimble Shoals channel. The camera was dash mounted and fired with a remote control. Canon G11, 1/10 sec @ f/4.5, ISO 400.

83 - The Bright Light

From 365 Project
There is a bright light at the end of the tunnel. This picture was taken while I was approaching the exit of the westbound tunnel of the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel. Notice the ceiling is white over the left lane and black over the right lane where the large trucks are confined. My Canon G10 was mounted on "The Pod", a beanbag camera mount, and placed on the passenger side dash. The exposure was 1/6s at f/4.0, ISO 400, 30mm equivalent focal length and the camera was fired with a Zap Shot wireless remote.
