"Two Bridges"

By RonnieAG
This photo was taken last Friday on a visit to the Dumfries House Estate (the one saved for the nation by a consortium headed by HRH The Prince Charles) and shows two bridges over the Lugar Water.
The foreground Chinese Bridge, built only about 4 years ago, frames the 1760 John Adam designed elliptical bridge, also known as the Avenue Bridge.
(Jasmine is about to cross the Chinese Bridge from the right........she often manages to sneak into my landscapes).

My thanks to all who commented on my Painted Lady.

Ronnie.

Beautifully timed Ronnie, was Jasmine under instructions?
like how the blue from the sky has reflected into the water,
enhancing this lovely landscape, and what an unusual bridge
leading us into the second bridge

And two very different cultures, Ronnie. Beautifully captured.

Very useful to have a 'figure in the landscape' to hand. The framing of a bridge with a bridge works well with the stream taking you the image nicely.

What Dave said...
I think I prefer the original stone bridge in the distance...not sure about the esthetics of that suedo-Chinese effort...

I initially thought you'd been over the seas to China! A lovely composition and capture, Ronnie, framing the bridge within the bridge 👍
