Photo Hunters - Bridge(s)



I'm really looking forward to looking at the terrific photos of "bridge(s)" that the Photo Hunters will be posting today. I am prepared to be amazed and inspired.

As for my "bridge" photos - while driving home from a trip to Utah I stopped to take these pictures from a bridge that crossed over the Colorado River. The second one was the view from atop the bridge itself. The river looks so brown because it was late summer and with very little rain, the water level was very low level.

I always wonder how do they build such huge bridges across valleys, and rivers?

That is such an interesting bridge, stark and strong. The water is an interesting colour too! :)

Ohhhh, this gave me butterflies in my belly ;) Amazing, but also a bit frightening.

Have a nice day :)

I was just in Utah this past summer...loved it all...so of course your photo brought up pangs of desire to return. Where was this taken...near or between which towns?

Awesome shots, brown water and all!

Bonggamom said...

Oh my gosh, wow. What an amazing place. Forgive my ignorance but is that the Grand Canyon? Or is that part of the Colorado River that isn't part of the Grand Canyon?

Sherry said...

That's water down under that bridge??? Of course, it is, but it's not such enticing water, is it? Great shots.

Interesting perspective ... reminds me of a bridge I encountered outside of Taos, New Mexico but forgot about for this post. I shared 'bridges' at both Sacred Ruminations and Happily Retired Gal this weekend.
Hugs and blessings,
