New and Old

Notice the rock in the lower left of the frame with the boards still attached. That's what remains of the old bridge. The new bridge is quite a bit higher. I wouldn't want to be there if the water or log jam gets high enough to take it out.

I guess all that debris is pushed downstream when the river is in full spate - unimaginable in summer.

Difficult to imagine that the water can rise so high while here we can cross under the bridge! Beautiful image full of freshness !

I suspect they built it higher from a lesson learned as the old one washed out. Nice shot of the new bridge.

An excellent PoV with great DoF!! Love the rich colors as well. Makes absolute sense as to why the bridge was raised.

It looks high enough but I don't know how bad the floods get, I love the clarity and clearness of the water. The shot is beautiful!
