Fascinating bridge. It looks like it might go back to Roman times but I haven’t found the history of this little gem. Great atmosphere and light.

Wonderful atmosphere; dreamy, enchanted. The streaks of foam really help with the lower part of the stream.

I’m with Igor on the bridge - fascinating and looks ancient.

A great combination of misty greens. The bubble streaks in the stream do a fine job of bringing the foreground to life. I expect a hobbit or leprechaun to peek out from behind the bridge at any moment. :grinning:


Hi Igor. You can find the story behind this photo and this amazing medieval era bridge at my website.
