Hyde DP said...

a great interpretation of the theme Hyde DP is carrying permalinks to the bridge posts and will be updated at intervals until Dec 2nd.

isabella said...

LOL! I think I'd prefer to use the bridge in the background ;-)

Strangetastes said...

Clever! I wouldn't be able to cross it myself, being rather clumsy. Did you see anyone give it a try?


Saint Louis CDPB has a quiz and contest for theme day. It should be posted between 3.00 and 4.00 GMT on Saturday. Stop by and have a try.

julia said...

has 'atmosphere' is special, thanks.

Ann (MobayDP) said...

Believe it or not there are several "bridges" like that here in Jamaica and they are actually used daily! :-D
I wish I had captured one of them for my Theme Day photo. I agree with isabella though...I'd definitely be using the one in the back :-D

Fénix (Bostonscapes DP) said...

It works perfectly, yes! That's a lovely view, so lush and peaceful. Great choice for the theme. :)

Kate said...

Since there are two bridges in this photo, I think I'd try both!

Kuanyin said...

Great photo of two bridges...I like the tree bridge the best though. Happy Theme Day!

Clueless in boston said...

Good show! Very creative and interpretative choice for a bridge picture. But I would use the one in the background.

Jilly said...

I noticed the log before the bridge and both are perfect. Great choice. Fab.

Keropok Man said...

I see double bridges! haha...

Great shot for the theme.


Happy Theme Day!

That certainly represents one of the first types of bridges man ever used. Nice that it was there for the theme.

Rambling Round said...

Looks like a footbridge for the fearless!

Denton said...

Your photo brought a smile to my face. In my youth the tree would have been be choice to cross the stream. Today I would walk a little future and use the bridge.

Gwen said...

Great photograph of two bridges. :)

Paul said...

Nice idea for a bridge... the river looks delightful to swim in ;)

Joy said...

Great angle at which you snapped the bridge. I like the green as well.

I would use one beyond.

sam said...

cool!

Lezard said...

Thanks all for your comments!!! Like most of you, I woul also choose for the "normal" bridge to cross this canal. I'll check out whether any kid dares to cross it on the wooden log!

J.A. said...

Well, I heard that Eric and Igor are going to ask the DCP bloggers to walk along the bridges they posted, stop at the middle, take a picture a post it until tomorrow.
:-)
Thanks for your visit to Sesimbra

Good eye to spot the double bridge. And the Clingendael certainly is a beautiful spot.
