Hi Ryan, it is a very good composition. Nice structure modeled out in colour. I like the front cross. It is jumping right into my eye.
Thanks Carsten. For me, it's hard to look at the top cross. I know it's just at the top of the picture, but it feel like I have to look straight up to see it.
Very nice view, Ryan! A very simple, but useful construction!
Thanks May! The bridge is constructed using a Howe truss, but I think this only refers to the vertical truss inside the walls. I don't know if the ceiling pieces have any specific name.
Thanks John. It must be very strong. There was a flood in 1986 that rose above the roadbed of the bridge, and pushed against the side hard enough to move the bridge on its foundations. But the structure of the bridge itself sustained hardly any damage.
This is a very nice shot Ryan, I love the pattern in the ceiling beams. Very geometric and regular, yet with enough subtle irregularities to give it a hand-made look.
Thanks Brandon. It's nice to see craftsmanship that is so functional and sturdy, that can last for so long. This bridge is still standing while many iron bridges built a hundred years later are already rusted beyond repair.
This is another interesting perspective shot. Good shot.
Thanks Dana. This bridge is a long way from home, so I tried to get as many good angles as possible, no need to go back.
This one appears to have a very high ceiling!
