    Gorgeous shot. Did you place an order for those lovely clouds? It all goes together perfectly….great job.

  • My order would have been for less bright clouds, but these did create a neat shadow on the hills and a nice reflection. Thanks! ☺

    Fantastic view Jade, the beautiful river with the superb reflections, the forested hills and the very impresive bridge, all perfectly captured! Brilliant photo, should get a feature very soon!

  • Thanks for your good wishes ☺, we’ll see. I was influenced in my choice because the challenge was ‘bridges’. My best memories of this place are on video, but I’m too busy here at RB to get them edited for WS and YouTube. Never enough hours… ☺
