By Oleg_Lobzin
Good evening. Thank you all for your attention to my photos. And comments.
Despite the end of March, when the photo was taken, the weather is obviously not spring ..
Patriarchal Bridge - a pedestrian bridge in Moscow. It was opened in 2004. Located opposite the Cathedral of Christ the Savior, Moscow, crossing the river and connecting Prechistenskuyui Bersenevskaya embankments on stylobate part goes through Marsh Island and crosses the drainage channel, ending up at Yakimanskaya waterfront.
Patriarchal bridge built by architect M. Posokhin, artist Zurab Tsereteli and engineers Kolchin and O. Chemerinsky. Different unusual truss bearing span. Overall construction is styled with traditional architecture bridges XIX century. In the painting of the bridge built in lamp, which is the original lighting.
Immediately after the opening of this bridge is a popular destination among couples and honeymooners. It was on the bridge for the first time in Moscow, it was observed a new phenomenon - in its enclosure began to appear "locks of love": the large granary, small and elegant, with names or without names.
In 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 on the bridge were recorded Christmas speech of the President of Russia Dmitry Medvedev.
Regards, Oleg.

I think this a fantastic image , love all the detail in the old style street lamps , bridge frame work and back ground buildings . probably should not say this as the photo is so good but i would have been tempted to clone out the newer style street lamp in the bottom left hand corner , minor detail , great shot .

I would have cloned out the newer lamps too but I am an unrepentant tinkerer! This is a lovely image that has increased my longing to visit Moscow again.

This is such a beautifully composed image. I like the mist rising over the bridgework.

The lamps being the darkest elements, the eye follows them up and over the bridge, very nice perspective. The mist under the bridge is atmospheric, whilst the misty background and building don't detract from the lamps.
superb image oleg,love the misty look to it,well done.ray
