I love 'em! It's amazing how narrow that bridge is - not much more than the train! It the structure crooked? The second shot is very interesting.

So, you weren't walking on this train bridge were you? (I have a friend who did just that, and along came a train...lots of panic, near miss and tons of adrenalin!Scares me just thinking about it...)

Beautiful view! Just enough to see, and imagine.

Pam said...

What a beautiful area this is, Jill. Wish I was there to see it in person. I love the angels of your shots, they are both captivating and draw you right into the photo.

The photos are beautiful - I'm not sure if I like them ... or the black and white ones better! I guess I'll have to say I LOVE them ALL!!!

Spiderdama said...

Your shots are great and the nature is wonderful.
Too bad you can not climb anything .. it's good to touch the stone :-) We hope to get a dry summer for you, then perhaps there may be some climbing.
Wish you a blessed Easter also:-)

We have similar old structures around my home place too, I love to catch the play of shadows on these old rail bridges.

Good shot ... it looks so real, I'm getting vertigo!

Coy said...

Totally beautiful! Great comp & colors.

I remember only once walking a rr bridge(Kinzua Bridge built 1882) . It was no longer used to carry freight, only a sight-seeing train. Walked across and back, 301' ft high. A couple of years later a wind blew it down.

Beautiful perspectives enhancing the intricate patterns created by the ironwork!

Mildred said...

That is not only a great shadow shot but just a lovely, scenic area. Thank you for sharing and I wish you a wonderful weekend.

Love the shadow on the water. Beautiful!

Spadoman said...

I like it. And it IS crooked! I thought optical illusion at first. Nice Catch.
Here's Mine

Johnny Nutcase said...

hmm, well i did walk on it, half way. Don't worry...the tracks aren't used anymore (i should have taken some more pictures of them at certain points - totally torn up and eroded!). Thanks for the nice comments, everyone :)

sniehans said...

Very lovely shots! You have a great blog! I wonder how much the bridge wobbles when a train passes over... ;)
