What a great achievement in engineering...it makes you wonder where they started....A good winter scene Kev...it looks well below freezing !!..DJ.
GORGEous! (I'm sure you knew that was coming)
Have a nice new week! :)GG
Grand as the proverbial owt that there is Kevin !
Ni'mind achievement and all t'rest o'that twaddle... I reckon the poor bloke what stood in all the cold and took this picture deserves a bloomin' medal!
That is truly smashin'
Its a corker ol' mate.
Very beautiful. I looks like engraved! I like it.
Doesn't get much better than this...Great shot in difficult but perfect conditions from a really good vantage point. Very well done Kevin!
Absolutely stunning shot Kevin! You really know where to go to find these kind of marvelous subjects, but I'm stil wondering how you got it snowing right in time for your trip. I love the combo of the framing and the depth that the bridge generates!
I think this one is the best of the bunch, but I will litter a few likes about elsewhere.

LOVE IT! Glad you're hands weren't too frozen to capture the moment for the rest of the world!

Hi Kevin, you have surpassed yourself here, this is superb. The composition, lighting and atmosphere are just to die for. In to my favourites methinks! Regards, Nik
Your photos are getting better and better. I am sure you have a deluxe assistant now. The atmosphere in this photo is wonderful.
Unda, Thank you! How was it built? Believe me, I wish I knew - it really is an amazingly engineered piece of infrastructure!
Nik, and Draken, wow, guys, thank you very much!!! As always, it is a real pleasure to hear from you both!
