Bridge of Shadows

By NDODS    
Another image captured in the most beautiful grounds of Chiddingstone Castle. This is one of many wooden bridges that criss-cross the small stream which worms its way around the grounds of the Castle which eventually reaches the main section of this particular section of the River Medway.

Regards Nathan

P.S. Thank you for all your comments. I am and feeling quite positive, and certainly much better after my Kings Visit. and furthermore' I sincerely hope that you all have a great day, and an even better Bank Holiday weekend

A fine wide angle shot and it looks good in black 'n white. Might be worth trying it in sepia.

Stark and soft at the same time. Wonderful perspective Smile

Nathan, we have both had to cross over many bridges with dark shadows, but the sun has shined for us and allowed us pass over.
The Shadows on your photograph are truly dark but the bridge is not forboding. Eric.

The bridge and it's shadows make an excellent lead in, in every way, to this forest section, the verticals of the bridge echoing the verticals of the trees.
Nice shot, Nathan.
Have a good day.
