Green and Gold

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

I must admit to liking this shot! The subtle greens and gold of autumn are all captured here..I particularly enjoyed capturing the sheen of green light on the moss..The perspective along the bridge particularly caught my attention and is well depicted in the shot..Vehicles still ford this river at regular intervals..It pays not to stand too close to the river at this point! Another pleasing feature in the shot is the last bastion of Britishness in the markings of the Height Gauges..I still think "imperially", despite the national trend to metrication.

My lovable little terrier got into the shot and can just be seen at the first step :)

So~oh cool, Jim. Wish i had one in my back yard....Then again, the high water mark hints at some not so picturesque moments ;)

Beautiful autumn colours Jim, and an interesting bridge as well.

Rosalia©~~~I greet you warmly Rosalia..I'm flattered that you chose to save this to yourfavourites, thank you!

stacy metcalf~~~Thanks for your fulsome and humorous comments Stacy :)

mbe21~~~~Thanks _Mick! The bridge has stood on those concrete pillars for 110 years....It was built sufficiently high to give clearance for debris such as trees, boughs, and boulders that have been known to be carried along at times of flood.

To you all, I express my sincere gratitude for your visits, precious comments, your endorsements, likes, especially the Y*'s and for taking the time to look!

Kind regards :)

YOLANDA~~~Hola mi amigo :) Galicia es una región de España sólo conozco de fotos y documentales ..

En mi vida, tuve pocas oportunidades para viajar y mi deseo de descubrir otros países no era una prioridad .. Una decisión que he llegado a pesar. Por lo menos, sus comentarios me dan un hermoso sabor del medio ambiente en su Galicia:)

Estoy muy agradecido por su apreciación de esta foto, el YSL significa mucho para mí!

Ewiwa 2~~~Many thanks for your appreciation!
