Another of the Bridge to Nowhere, on the East Lothian Coast.
The bridge crosses the water and serves as footpath for anyone walking the John Muir Way, but at high tides of 5m plus, it becomes surrounded by the ocean and gives the appearance that it is a bridge to nowhere. Usually Bass Rock can be seen in the distance, but the sea mist was so thick that it couldn't be seen nor could the headland on the right of the picture. As I stood photographing this bridge, several groups of people, emerged from the mist on the sand flats opposite to realise they had mistimed the crossing, they did all eventually make it across or onto the bridge.
I definitely plan to return to this location when hopefully Mother Nature will provide a sky full of definition. but when youve travelled 2 and half hours just to see it, you have to take what Mother Nature decides to give you.

As always Thanks for Looking

Worth your 2.5 hrs drive Chant, you had good productive outing, another super image, it's those people emerging in the distance that really seals the image.

I concur with Les re the people in the distance.
A very lovely Image once again Chant.
Serenity springs to mind.

Well captured and presented with this slightly more letterbox crop.

The figures are further apart here, their sense of isolation and bewilderment is growing.

Another beautiful shot, Chant. I do prefer the light and colour in the previous one but I also like the haunting feel of this one.

Great shot. Would love to see what it looks like with the tide out to get a feel of the place.

Stunning image again - the figures do add an extra dimension.
Frightening to know from your narrative that this is real!

A great image, Chant. I'm glad you included your commentary as well. Here in California we are proud of the John Muir Trail.

A little belated but still meant sincerely.
Congratulations on yet another UA Chant.

I think the mist and the people make this a superb image. I cannot image that seeing Bass Rock would add to it, unless there was 'just enough' mist. I look forward to seeing your next attempt.
