Default A old Iron Bridge

I took off very early today on very icy roads to photograph three iron bridges a hour or so from my house.
It was almost daylight when I got to the first bridge, I was pretty dissapointed as it was so gray and bland,
I had hoped to have a few breaks in the clouds. I made the best of it and this was one of the better photos
from my outing. Most of my shots looked like black and white photos even though they were in color, at
least this bridge had some rust on it to show a bit of color.

Gray, maybe. Bland, uh uh. I like it.

Bob,

This photo draws(?) the viewer with great force all the way to the end and even beyond the limits of the two dimensional format, out on the other side, behind the computer screen (or paper copy)

Have to press the foot(feet) break(?) to view the surroundings at the left and right while continously being drawn to and beyond

Have to look on the other side. Luckily I no longer have a CRT monitor

Thank you for the ride, Bob

Thank you Torgny! Here is a close up of the plaque on the far end of the bridge.

Thank you, Bob. Like that handicraft, arts and crafts and thanks for the information. Always admired bridge engineers. The whole idea of bridges, connecting people ...

A highschool friend of mine, Bert Lloyd, made a word, "broverkan", in translation "bridge-effect", "bridgeworking". Like that

Cool shot. I like the almost perfect symmetry of it, and I think it would look great in black and white too since there isn't much color in the landscape anyway.

That bridge looks like metal lace-work, too delicate to take regular road traffic. It's amazing how something like that can last such a long time.
