Looks more like the infinity bridge.

A road you could loose yourself on.

Great shot.

An excellant picture that would certainly have a good chance of being accepted in UK exhibitions.
I wondered if you croped a section of the sea off the bottom of the print, whether it would make the shot even more dramatic.

I used a cropped version of this image on my business card and it looks very nice but the current dimensions are perfect for my 24x36 prints on canvas.

Fantastic shot Christopher!!

This is a beautiful shot! I think the B&W enhances the image, from the depth of the clouds to the drama of the bridge angle. Can't believe you caught this from a kayak - more props to you just for the steady hand! :)

This is such a great image. You've done a fantastic job converting it to B&W. I don't think you could have picked a better angle. At first I thought it was a composite of two images...the way the bridge seems to sink into the water. Congratulations!

I love the way this looks in b/w.
From your kayak, eh? You must be pretty sure of yourself in it to bring your camera along. I am glad you did! Magnificient shot.

Thanks Kathleen,
I kayak once a week, and always bring a camera. You never know what you might capture.
No mishaps yet.

When I saw this image in the florida gallery, I immediatly recognized it from your business card. Looked at your gallery too. Some nice photos.

Tell me. How do you protect your camera when kayaking? I would like very much to be able to do the same.
