Hickman Bridge

Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 26 January 2015 in Landscape & Rural.

Continue east on Highway 24 and hike up to this natural bridge. The span is 135 feet (38.1 meters) and, from this side, it doesn't look all that big. It's true scale will be obvious tomorrow.

Whatever the scale, I don't think I'd want to stand under it . .

A natural bridge...and a Window at the same time! I like the look beyond the frame of the bridge! Great effect!

Breathtaking landscape feature. The tree below the arch gives some sense of scale.

I like how the bridge is a darker color than the rock face behind. This makes the bridge stand out appropriately. It will be interesting to see tomorrow's.

Great series and perfect photo of the natural bridge. Great use of the bridge shadow to make it stand out from the background and I like the little sky in the corner to add dimensions.

A great view of one of nature's creations!! I love how the shadowed bridge helps make the view beyond stand out nicely here.
