The sun was setting over the Bahia Honda Rail Bridge

Once part of the East Coast Railway, it connected the Bahia Honda Key with the Spanish Harbor Key. A road was built on top of the railway, so it became part of the original Overseas Highway. Later, a new bridge was built replacing the old route, and the original one was abandoned. Two if its spans were removed leaving a gap to allow boats to go through and glorious sunsets be framed between them.  A perfect picture to take back to New York: an idyllic sunset looking west and a mini rainbow far away, east.
