Post your bridges!

Postby Blow-in » Sun Oct 27, 2013 1:57 pm

Some of us have discussed a bridges thread - while I can't make this a 'sticky' I thought it would be interesting to try a 'Post your bridges!' topic here in landscape/architecture rather like the 'Post your doors!' topic.

So if you have a picture of any type of bridge you would like to contribute, please post a reply.

Here is a starter from me. The so called 'Bridge over the Atlantic' between the Scottish mainland and the island of Seil. Completed in 1793 it's still the only bridge to the island asnd routinely takes 40 ton loads.

So here is another bridge. This time the Connel Bridge which is of special interest as it originally opened in 1903 as a railway bridge but now is used only as a road bridge controlled by lights as it is too narrow to allow a twin track. There was a period when the bridge was used for both trains & vehicles and operated like a sort of level crossing so that only one form or other was on the bridge at any one time. There is also a footpath for those who don't mind heights and give a great view of the Falls of Lora which run underneath. Unfortunately when I walked across it was way too wet (rain) to use the GXR.

Richard,
apparently the topic will not be about bridges. This will be about history. And I`m very interested to see more of what you can share.
As a balance - something more modern from my side:

Nice picture ycp13 - Singapore? Yes, there can be a lot of history associated with bridges - even modern ones have a place in history. Here is a modern bridge - the Kessock Bridge (1982) - which has had a major impact on how people travel and where they live since it opened and replaced a very modest car ferry.

I think I used bleach bypass and some vignetting on this one.

Here is another bridge - one of many WW2 era Bailey Bridges redeployed in the Highlands for more peaceful purposes.

Great idea Richard,
here's a local walkway bridge, quite wobbly.

No PP on this one, no time, straight from the camera

This is my 1st post and my 3rd day with the GR. I am a long time Nikon & Leica user. I picked up this little gem because the best camera you have is the one you have on you. I am so sick of lugging around gear and this tiny powerhouse fits right in my shirt pocket. My dad and grandfather shot many years with Ricoh's and my father recommended I give it a shot. So far it has been pure enjoyment. I am starting to love photography again. I took this one on my way to Massachusetts while driving. I could never pull this off when using a SLR or rangefinder.

Tim & derivative666, thanks for joining-in and a welcome too to d..666. I totally agree that the best camera is one in your hand and you've caught the essence of the GR series - quality with portability or pocketability. Anyway, I hope you continue to enjoy your GR - keep posting!

Here is another bridge from me.

Properly this is known as the Waterloo Bridge in Inverness built in 1896 but is generally referred too as the Black Bridge due to the blackened timbers of the original bridge (1808) that this one replaced.
