Yeah, buddy! The ONLY thing I find distracting is the bridge. Other than that, wow!

I'm a railroad fan. One of the things I really like is the bridge in the background. Which in many ways is a snapshot of a century of U.S. transportation and commercial history.

Nice work Charles.

......yes, I too like these Charles and for me I very much like the bridge in the background, with the bridge or wighout it the photo is very appealing. Well done.

Thanks guys for the comments.

Gary, I know the bridge could be distracting from a purest landscape type view, I did shoot multiple shots during the limited reflection of the pink skies in the water & not all of them included the bridge. Decided to include the bridge in case of a request for just such an image arises in the future from the locals.

Ted, the bridge is actually now part of the Great Allegheny Passage the hiking & biking trail that starts @ Point State Park in Pittsburgh, & ends in Washington D.C., it travels several different rail road beds, one is the C&O towpath in Maryland which you are probably familiar with based on your previous posts. I can't remember for sure but I think that bridge was originally built in the 1890's but I've shot so many old Rail bridges over the past couple years I can't remember the build dates of all of them.

Hey Charles: why don't you share some of your bridge shots? That should make for an interesting post.
