Skywatching From a Stone Arched Bridge: for Skywatch Friday


editing note: This last photo, which I have added on Oct. 18th, was taken by my brother while he was standing above on the railroad bridge, and I am down below at the river level; to the slight left of the orange tree.
My appreciative thanks to Tom, Sandy, Imax, Ivan and Klaus for hosting Sky Watch Friday .

Great photo. This has everything. Just think of everything great you have ever heard about photos, and apply them to this one.

Well done and great choice for SWF.

Great shot. Silly me, I thought that was a lamp post on the bridge 'til I zoomed in. LOL! I like the water under the bridge too.

Beautiful, wonderful bridge photo. And I love the one in your header as well. I have to tell you that I've considering printing one of your fall photos and doing a painting with it; I don't have much time now, so it's just a thought. But they are truly inspiring.
