A Bridge in the Trees

Maybe it leads to a tree house? Just kidding but from this angle it sort of looks like this old bridge could be up in the trees instead of just surrounded by them.

More bridges can be seen here at Sunday Bridges.

What a wonderful old structure and it does look high in the trees. I love how the sunlight plays off the leaves.

It's a very nice bridge but what I like best is the light you caught and the way it's framed!

Are you really kidding? I'd bet indeed it was a bridge between tree houses! :)
God bless you!

This is so pretty and so beautifully framed by the lush trees. The light is yummy AND do I see some reflection of the bridge in that water...what a bonus!

It looks like the bridge is being absorbed by surrounding trees. The dappled light adds to the magic.

A nice view between the trees.

All that life. And in just a few months it will bare branches with the dry leaves on the ground. Makes us love it all the more.

Time to embark on the Ever-to-Never line....A special railway that will lead you to somewhere else, but who knows where...

Gorgeous!

What an idyllic spot. The light filtering through the trees is just gorgeous and the bridge is framed beautifully by the foliage and tree trunks. It's wonderful to see man and nature getting along with such peaceful compatibility. Too often, they are at odds.

Jientje said...

That's a lovely bridge James!

EG Wow said...

I believe this bridge does indeed lead to a treehouse. It's owned by a princess. :)

Lois said...

So peaceful looking!

Tulsa Gentleman said...

That looks like a classic swimming hole. Beautiful nested in the trees.

Now that is a nice cool looking place to be... heat is a bit better now but still up there in the 30's:)

What a beautiful scene & it really does look like it's up in the trees! Beautiful!

Genie said...

Beautiful shot of the bridge and it does look suspended in the trees.

The frame of the emerald green. . . Or a window.

The bridge seems to be displayed on the frame.

JM said...

What a wonderful composition, James!

Cheryl said...

One can image what an impressive tree house that might be at the end of the bridge! Its a lovely photo indeed.

Beth Niquette said...

I think this is one of the prettiest bridge photos I've ever seen.

This fills my eyes--and my imagination!
