Right of Passage

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Captured on a warm, sunny winters day..Again, the little Nikon camera continues to capture nice images..There is a disused railway line across this old brick arch. Nowadays, this is a very popular public footpath which forms part of the Cleveland Way. A 176 km long walk. I did not have time to finish it!

Dezso Biczo ©~~~Hi! Dezso :)~~~~Thanks for the affirmation and generous praise!

Sababoy~~~~~Taking this route on a sunny winters day is one of life's great pleasures Sababoy...

cindy555~~~There are many similar brick-arches along this trail Marion..They've stood there since the mid 1800's..The track was long since removed but the bed is properly maintained for cyclist and walkers alike!

taoy~~~This winter has been very kind Taoy..Very little rain,frost or snow with long sunny days. We think it the warmest winter on record!

Ngo Minh Truc~~~Many thanks for your appreciation !

Paula K~~~I love em Paula..I like the cool dank smell of old tunnels (except in those that smell like urinals)''I like the sound of echoing voices and that light at the end of it!!

Cesar Perez Ortega~~~I'm delighted to see you here Cesar I have you at the top of my must visit soon list..It's been too long :)

canpao~~~~These man-made features can often enhance the rural scenery and many of these brick structures, from the days of steam railway, make excellent photographic subjects as can be seen here in this shot by PAULA.K..

Chis Bogdan~~~~~I'm grateful for your visit and kind appraisal Bogdan :)

I love bridges, Jim, and that is a good'n! It is weird that this photo gets sharper the larger the size you view. I love the shadows too.

skida~~~It's good to see you Kieth :) It had occurred to me that the close up was clearer..I think that the camouflage effect is the mask that defines this photo....Many thanks for your interesting comments :)

Kind regards!
