The caption is apt. An overcast sky can be a real bummer ain't it?

Thanks for sharing.

Very interesting shots, I love old trains and railroad stuff almost as much as photography!

Great shots. You have really captured the personality of that old bridge. One wonders how many stories it has to tell!

Nice shots Minoltanut, I'd be tempted to add a little contrast, but that might take away what it really looked like that day.

BTW..FOR THOSE THAT DON'T KNOW. THIS IS A LIFT BRIDGE. THE BIG RECTANGULAR BLOCK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FIRST PIC IS THE COUNTERWEIGHT..





YEARS AGO WE HAD TO ADD WEIGHT TO A SIMULAR TYPE BRIDGE IN CALIFORNIA TO ACCOMIDATE A FILM CREW...




I TRIPPED WHILE UP THERE ON THE CAT WALK AND BARELY HUNG ON FOR MY LIFE...NOOOO FUN...LONGGGG WAY DOWN
