Shadow Shot Sunday - Trestle


For Shadow Shot Sunday 2 we are looking at an old train trestle that spans the Housatonic River between the old downtowns of Derby and Shelton CCT. The lovely Patti (who is taller than me :) captured this iron bridge on an August day from the footbridge along the Derby Greenway. The trains rarely cross these days, so its usefulness is better as classical industrial design that allows for shadowy art...

You have clean, bright colors in this shot. Bridges can be lovely things and I like this one with its shadows.

Delightful view of the bridge. A great example of the enchantment of old worlds.

Great shot even if it looks a bit sad...
Must've been hard work to build this one...
New bridges are like art, with long wires, interesting curves etc.
Have a good week ahead!

The rust on the ironwork also adds charm to the photo.
