Bridge to Awaji-shima at night

This is the Akashi Bridge that connects Awaji-shima with Kobe, as seen from the Akashi side. It doesn’t look like it in the picture, but the sky was pretty dark, and you could just barely make out the beach in the dim light.
I didn’t have a tripod, so I rested it on a bench. Unfortunately, a stiff, cold wind was blowing, there was a lot of light from multiple sources polluting the area, and the shutter was open for too long (about 10 seconds or so) for this picture to come out as clearly as I would have liked it to have.
Well, I guess it’s time to study up on night photography and hopefully I will have some better pictures to post shortly. I don’t think I’ll be returning to photograph the Akashi bridge because it’s too far away. Justin, you’re on this.
