As a personal project, Moore spent three and a half years photographing the construction of the now named Anzac Bridge. He knew it from every angle. From the head of Rozelle Bay, the bridge is seen in direct elevation across the water. At certain times of the year, the full moon appears in the center of the span over the illuminated city.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
