i remember niraj posting a similar bridge in sikkim a few weeks ago. i thought i must share this bridge with u too. this is at a place called rabom, which supplies electricity to entire north sikkim. and this bridge links rabom village to the road to lachen. i stayed here for a few days at one of my friend's place, and we used to have a regular morning walk across this bridge. we saw kids crossing the bridge to their school and men crossing over to their work.
during all my trips to the hills, i have been fascinated by these bridges. as the BRO works relentlessly to make it easier for the people, one wonders the power of men to overcome the hurdles of nature. and the hills on both sides admire and look upon all these efforts quietly. thats why i fall in love with Himalaya all the time.
the photo is short coz it is scanned. and i dont have SFTW to adjust its size. my comp is doing wierd things and cant post my images in its original size.
still happy viewing

Nice to see almost similar image as I had posted some days back.I find it better than mine as movement on bridge make your scene more lively.
Sabya, we belong to same tribe who love Himalaya more than anything in this world.
Thanks a lot for sharing

What a pleasant surprise!Im just back from Sikkim and now Im seeing this post of yours.But, I find Niraj's post much more worthy and attractive 'coz it is bigger, it has lovely green colour.I guess the POV and the colour could have been better.Anyway,good attempt.

Sundor photograph kintu eto choto keno..?? I love the diagonal perspective in this shot and the dynamism with the vehicle on the bridge which looks dangerous,,good shot..!!!

That's a beautifull place..
Niraj had an earlier post with a different angle. Now, you have made another with a dynamic composition, but with a small version.
SIKKIM has many more to be framed, I think..
SALUTES, dear friend..

I remember very well Niraj's post....in fact I have his pic saved in my PC :)And your shot is good too, but why this smile size,dear Sabya?I know from your note but here you've lost so much
Anyway,I like it very much this bridge is very impressive and a good subject for photos
All the best
