Sky Bridge in Davenport, taken with panoramic setting.

I cross the Sky Bridge a few times a year when I’m in town, but it took my brother from the West Coast to show me this photographic trick. The shot is taken with the panorama setting that’s found on most new smart phones and digital cameras. That part is nothing special. Here’s the secret: The bridge’s lights cycle through different colors one at a time. As the photographer pans from left to right, the lights change from green to blue to violet to red to yellow and so on, creating the rainbow effect.

Bonus bridge: The lighted Centennial Bridge can be seen outside in the blue band on the right.
