Super composition, Brattcat! Had to embiggen it to get the full impact...but this is a great shot! The kids in the river kinda pull it all together!

P.S. - I don't know what the house rents for in Cedar Key, but I think you could get a good deal now.

Claudette missed us entirely, but I'm a bit worried about Ana and Bill...

Aaargh! I hate hurricane season!

This is classic Vermont and you captured the tonal range beautifully in this monochrome.

This image brings back stories my father told me about he and his friends going to the "swimming hole" under the bridge.

Thanks for the memories, Brattcat.

I hope these bridges are preserved forever. They are so unique.

Amazing bridge! A small wooden 'house' to allow you crossing the river, how very cool! Beautiful shot too!

It certainly looks warm there. The b/w works with that old bridge. That's a 'keeper'.

That looks like a sturdy old bridge. We have some around our neighborhood and check them out from time to time. We had a double barrel one not far from here and it was a beautiful thing and some kids burned it down. Imagine that.

I like the bridge in black and white. It helps with the age to look like it was taken back when that was all the film available.

Beautiful shot. It works well in monochrome; like it could have been taken 100 years ago.

And then, clint Eastwood took a picture of meryl Streep in the corner of the bridge...a lot of pictures come to the mind when seeing such a beautful place...
