so beautiful and exquisite - mine on my photoblog was just something I took unaware of the reflection until I looked at on the computer but felt it needed the larger treatment. Will have to think whether I've something else to post on my personal blog.

You're a master of reflections James. Another fine shot.

Hi James,

I see you are getting plenty of greenery now. I like the way you show only the top of the bridge from the point of view of the reflection. The hard lines against the liquid lush delicate leaves is extremely effective. I love the colors too. This is a beautiful photograph that communicates the glassy stillness of the scene.

SquirrelQueen said...

The water is so still, almost like glass. Great shot James, I love covered bridges.

Ebie said...

The rusty look of the reflection is so natural. A perfectly clear day for to shoot this reflection.

EG Wow said...

The bridge makes a great reflection and I like the angle you shot it from.

Hi, molto bella questa foto...
guardandola si ha l'impressione che sotto non ci sia dell'acqua, ma bensì uno specchio vero.
Molto bello quest'effetto di riflesso:-)

Lois said...

Very clear! It's as if there is a mirror under the bridge. Lovely!

I guess it was Jules Verne, who said, that water might be the power and source of/for the future - a picture able to bridge the gab between the fast and future for sure.
Please have a wonderful weekend.
