    Probably one of the better shots I have seen of this bridge taken by other photographers. Nice and clean and sharp.

  • thanx Paul … It was a very sturdy subject [didn’t move around too much] so that helped much toward the clarity of the capture … ;)

  • Pity this image was rejected in the group:
    FAUNA, FLORA, LANDSCAPES AND ARCHITECTURE OF SOUTH AFRICA — reason offered “I’ve too many of the same series entered there”

    Heh He. What a time to give up sniffing glue :-) (Lloyd Bridges – AirPlane, the movie). I guess there are too much of the same of this bridge… a cliche I think – Now, if we could just position a camera in a unique position – then maybe ..

  • yup – that was the reason for the few that I’ve tried …
