The arch and its reflection make together an eye which's leading our look to the "other side" of the bridge, curious to see what's behind..

Dani said...

The arch and its reflection are marvelous.

Happy 4th of July and have a joyous weekend!

We are SO lacking bridges out here in so. California! The east has such beauties, all unique. This is another beautiful bridge and reflection, James.

Sunny said...

I probably use the word 'breathtaking' too many times when it comes to your photography - but that is the first word that comes to mind.
After I did my post for today, I realized it was Weekend Reflection day! It totally slipped my mind :(
Happy Weekend.

Thats a beauty James, I could sit for hours by that river just looking, and of course with my camera.

Woody said...

Doesn't Bucks County have some great bridges? I really like the symmetry of this shot.

Thom said...

That is such a perfect reflection my friend. And the whole picture just speaks volume of our Independence if you ask me. You, Vicki and the cats have a very safe and happy 4th of July weekend :)

I don't remember ever seeing a stone bridge here.

I think Malyss is right. The arch and its reflection lead one's eyes to the other side. Except that the way is blocked!

I see some water movement of the left side though, so it looks like we could slip through there.

:D

Happy weekend, James!

Hilda said...

Oops.

Happy 4th of July!

Autumn Belle @ KDP said...

This is a very romantic reflection. Happy 4th of July!

The refelction of this charming little bridge has mesmerising, gentle beauty! Delightful!

Tash said...

The 1st thing that struck me is that it is such an uplifting image. Maybe it's the shape & the colors & the reflection...love it.
Also looks like Wknd Reflection, SkyWatch & Sunday Bridges all in one.

Owen said...

Looks a little overgrown, guess there aren't too many trains passing that way any more ?

Hope all is well in southeast PA, and that the back is doing better now...

James we'll have to let this one do double-duty and be an entry on Sunday Bridges!

lotusleaf said...

The bridge and the reflection are very evocative.

The bridge is absolutely beautiful! You always seem to capture the most perfect time for your pictures!

Once again, Mr. Linky and I are not getting along. When I typed a link to your blog in my post, I got the page that says there is no blog with that name.... and, as such, when I click on my name in your list, it takes me to a similar page. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for letting me be a part of this blog where so many truly gifted artists pass through each week. I never tire of all of the amazing pictures and photographers you've brought together!

Lew said...

I love the old bridge and its reflection! By chance my reflection includes an arch bridge.

Ann said...
