Nice composition and POV Jean. I like the way your eye follows that bridge around into the trees. Its too bad those wires are hanging right behind it. #1155633

Thanks Patricia, Eugenio and Alan.I nearly didn't enter this because of the power lines!
The curvature of the bridge doesn't show up very well so I will attempt to include another shot in case you are interested. If it doesn't work you can find it in my gallery #7775237
