Driving around town, I happened upon this scene of three bridges disappearing into the fog, and was struck by the recurring patterns of concrete, steel and light.

Thanks for all the comments and votes ... I was very pleased with the results for my first challenge. I didn't expect to do this well with an understated image that lacked much color and pop ... the 8s 9s and 10s are very humbling, and much appreciated (along with the rest). Its inspiring to see your images touch others. Thanks.

As for Team Pentax ... bring it on!

Dennis, not a bad start. A few more Pentaxians on this site & we'll almost have a WPL team - ha ha...

Wonderful picture. What makes this work is that while the repeating patterns are there, the difference in the types of bridges makes it sing. The title works extremely well since it draws your eye to the bridge on the left. A rare case were the title leads your eye. Highly rated.

i really like the fogginess of the scene, it seems to give the image an emotion and depth

I think the third smaller bridge is distracting.
