Sorry about the triple post, but noone in the Pictures forum is answering my question at the end of this post - which I just moved up to here: Are there any "floating" or dampened tripod heads for situations like this - shaky bridges or other less than stable surfaces?

July 5th, sunset from a bridge at Annapolis Harbor.

F100, Nikkor 17-35mm f/2.8 , Fuji Velvia, f/11 at 1/2 second. I was using a tripod, but there was a lot of traffic, and I could feel the bridge shake. This one came out pretty well, I think. This color combination lasted less than 30 seconds.

Thanks -

ENJOY THE DAY & CAPTURE THE MOMENT Bob T
