For purchase, shop online at The Mackinac Bridge is one of Michigan's most iconic landmarks. Construction of this 5 mile bridge began in 1954 and by the year 1998 it had over 100 million crossings. This drone photo named, "Don't Look Down," was captured by Tyler of Michigan Sky Media at the perfect time in March of 2018, as the diamond looking ice was melting. The metal grates that create the inner lanes on the bridge provide a queasy feeling for some, but give a thrill for many others. The frame of this art piece is created from the original grates that many of the Mighty Mac's travelers drove on. These grates are over 60 years old and pay tribute to the hard work, dedication, and lives lost during construction.
