Default Waiting by the bridge

This is one of the oldest bridges in Australia over the Coal river in the village of Richmond just outside Hobart.

I was thinking the same thing (that it looked more like Europe). I love the reflected or indirect light, it makes for a wonderful picture.

The bridge was built in 1823 by English settlers who would have learnt their bridge building in England and applied their knowledge here.

Being the most southerly state the Tasmania climate is close the English climate so the imported English trees near the bridge thrive, adding to that touch of English countryside.
