Draw Bridge

By TrevBatWCC    
Continuing my travels around Keukenhof lead me to this Draw Bridge, a style of moveable bridge that uses a counterweight to balance the span, designed to be operated by hand. It's styled similar to the 'Skinny' Bridge in Amsterdam, which is a double draw bridge, and crosses a canal which encircles the central area of the gardens. The version is taken from the centre of the bridge, looking along the canal.

Many thanks to Lynne (LynneJoyce), Carol (canoncarol) and Pam (ladynewbury) for their User Awards on my previous upload Well, that's Christmas dinner sorted... …, most appreciated Smile

Love the version - I'm wondering how long that boat will stay afloat with the weight it's carrying...

Two very attractive shots, Trev: interesting intro about the mechanism, and I do like the view from the bridge........I see another photographer is busy getting a shot of the vessel with it's floral stern.......most unusual but so photogenic.

Knew that bridge looked familiar, but not from Keukenhof.
Excellent weather you had for the visit, by the look of it, Trev.

So much of interest and you've captured some great images Trev. Ken & I were there a few years ago and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
