I went for a long drive to a much larger, more impressive bridge, but the skies were dull, flat and gray and, while it was a beautiful structure, I could not figure how to get a very interesting image. Don't you hate investing the time to get to a location only to squander it? You can't always count on beautiful skies or amazing light, but if you are good and creative there ought to be a way to get a few good images. However, viewing the shots of the big bridge later, I was disappointed in them and in myself. The next day, while driving around much closer to where we were staying I spotted this railroad bridge with some character and put on the brakes. I was a bit happier with this.

Mark this is a superb shot. Great symmetry and silky smooth with lots of nice detail. Surprised it didn't finish higher

Nice perspective on this. The BW works well and gives the appearance of age. Nicely done.

I like the sense of drama in this and that it is in B&W.
