Thank you very much, Sr. Vilas! I approached the bridge at a happy time of day, and when I found I had no vehicles behind me I stopped the car and spent some time in acquiring the photograph. The truck to the left was parked and I do not know where the driver was.
I am very glad you liked the picture. The bridge itself reminds older Americans of the Gilbert Erector Sets that they played with as children, with all the crossed girders. This is a real classic, although relatively short.
Best wishes from Virginia!

... always good to get an ephemeral shot ...
... I'm still irritated that I didn't get to DC to get a shot of the scaffolding around the Washington Monument several years ago ...
They certainly aren't to be found in every landscape . . . .
Beautiful reflections and colors, very nice photo Like
Nasser, Crvzr, merci beaucoup! :)
Meilleures salutations, May
Certainly none of the trees in the photograph were standing during the Civil War. It was a tremendous army and it would have taken a tremendous toll on every resource. I will not pretend to have a good background in logistics. But Joe Martin's observation about barns must be applicable to any structure that could provide shelter through a Virginia winter--and whether the Yankees were so sentimental about their horses as to shelter them if the soldiers themselves were freezing is an interesting question. You bet the pews were chopped up.
Thank you Thiago.
