    You must have waited ’til the proper day for that light!
    …there forever, and even the names seem an ancient language.
    Both photos are wonderful, indeed.

    A photograph is a capture of light, the light in this image is excellent. The bridge is so well captured, it could be painted. That indeed makes this true artwork, well done.
    And I just wasted way too much time with that story in the link – thanks for that!
