|Bay Lights on the Bay Bridge|
The Bay Bridge is one of the bridges that runs across the San Francisco Bay in California. This bridge that connects East Bay to West Bay runs between the cities of San Francisco and Oakland. Since 2013, this busy double-deck bridge has had an art installation of a different kind on its western stretch. Called Bay Lights, this is a display of light; of thousands of LED lights — to be precise — making patterns on its suspension and support cables. The artist who conceived this idea for the Bay Bridge is Leo Villareal.
Bay Light Facts (from the official site):
- The largest light displays in the world
- It is 18 miles wide and 500 feet hight
- There are a total of 25,0000 white led lights that make up this piece of art.
- The Bay Lights is supposed to be a temporary installation that is to be up till 2015. (If the project gets donations to keep it ‘on’ longer, it might continue to light up Bay Bridge for a longer period.)

The above pictures were taken without the help of a tripod (and some are from a moving car). They aren’t the best pictures of the installation. So here is a link that will show you ‘motion pictures’ of Bay Lights – Bay Lights video
