Stone bridge Tsagarada
Altitude: 470 metres.The old stone arched bridge of Tsagarada in comb of Mylopotamos,built 1787. Waters running everywhere, abundant and crystal descend to the sea and their babble transport histories of bygone seasons.
Tsagarada, means also beautiful view at other version royal village. It is a place for all the seasons, fairy and snow-white the winter, drowned in wild flowers the spring, cool and full of hydrangeas the summertime, sunk in red-yellow of leaves the autumn.

What a wonderful old bridge, its like something from a fairytale. I can easily see a troll living under this! You've created a beautiful setting for it too, by including so much of the surroundings we get a sense that this place is almost lost in the forest, making it an even more appealing find.
I also very much like the angry ugly face in the tree to the left, just where its tinted yellow.
thanks as always

Almost in a perfect camouflage within the green, the old arch-bridge well collected in variable light through the trees.
Built over rocks creek for the benefit of hikers in the forest. very pleasent photo to look at, and stroll thee especially as you did, on mid-summer day.
jacquest (18927) 2013-12-12 11:13
This is an interesting and well framed view of this charming bridge well hidden under it's coat of greenery. The diffuse light of the forest gives an interesting mood of quietness and nice tones of colors.
cornejo (43545) 2013-12-12 11:22

la scena è dominata dal colore verde e dalla penimbra del bosco, ma il soggetto è assai grazioso e fa tornare indietro nel tempo con la sua particolare forma.
Un bel soggetto che nel fotografare hai saputo inserire molto bene nell'ambiente che lo circonda.
Ottima la composizione e notevole la luce ed il contrasto che evidenzia le belle sfumature della scena.
Ciao e buona notte
papagolf21 (103026) 2013-12-12 11:54
Bonsoir, cher ami Danos,
Une bien belle peinture d'un très vieux pont bénéficiant d'un environnement végétal de toute beauté.
Très belle présentation.

Beautiful old stone bridge, far more interesting than a new. The construction are both simple and ingenious at the same time(and built to last for hundreds of years)A sharp and clear shot with a mysterious mood, Tfs!
Have a nice evening.
rasterman (479) 2013-12-12 12:33
Very interesting picture with a great atmosphere.
It looks really prety.
Nice work with light and contrast and good composition too
Thanks for sharing
PaulVDV (29533) 2013-12-12 12:37
This bridge is really very nicely integrated into its natural surroundings. The stones seem to originate at the rocks in the river. And its sides are quite overgrown.
Beautiful nature picture with an attractive architectural element.
Best regards, Paul
pierrefonds (67563) 2013-12-12 13:25
The length of the bridge is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the bridge. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice da.
Fis2 (99720) 2013-12-12 13:56
Wow, beautiful old stone bridge!
Excellent colors and light.
I like it.
carlo62 (50101) 2013-12-12 14:40
molto particolare l'arco di questo ponte, deve essere molto antico e il torrente deve essere impetuoso in certe stagioni, l'arcata del ponte molto ampia lo conferma.
Mi piace questa composizione.
lousat (92892) 2013-12-12 14:48
Hi Danos,beutiful old bridge in the heart of the forest,a very nice capture with bright colors and fine details despite the difficult light,very interesting piece of history,and very well done too.Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano
mcmtanyel (24001) 2013-12-12 15:27
It looks like a place that has a special beauty in every season. The ancient bridge has become one with nature.
nikkitta (17066) 2013-12-12 15:46
So not only beaches but charming landscape of the old bridge in the midlle of very green vegetation
Like the colors and contrasts given by the light of the sun and also the great sharpness that let appreciate details and textures
A true magic place, well done
emilbo (22616) 2013-12-12 17:03
Quel beau paysage et ce vieux pont recouvert de mousse est merveilleux et bien entouré d'une intéressante végétation. J'aime bile l'arbre à gauche bien placé dans la composition.
Toutes mes amitiés,
hidibyendu (929) 2013-12-12 18:01
How did you go to that place? Looks like its quite unreachable now. :).
But very nicely composed photo. Excellent colors and sharpness.
fabbs99 (17167) 2013-12-12 18:59
Good Morning ! Perfect lighting and a delightful composition.You have captured the mood of this beautiful place extremely well. Excellent photography.TFS.
Corry (4508) 2013-12-12 20:21
Une jolie prise de vue de ce vieux pont de pierre qui semble perdu dans cet environnement de verdure. Bon cadrage. Bien fait.
Subhogen (4067) 2013-12-12 22:12
What a wonderful shot of little arch bridge. The bridge is covered with moss and ferns and has blended well with the sylvan surroundings. Beautiful soothing green colors all around. Very well managed light. Nice composition, thanks for sharing.
jmdias (65105) 2013-12-12 23:57
very beautiful the shapes of this old bridge. I liked the natural details around of it, an image different from Greece. nice mood.
krzychu30 (15512) 2013-12-13 2:25
that´s something different from your seaside photos.But I hacve to say it´s equally beautiful and the place has certainly its own,unique charm and beauty.
The bridge looks magnificent surrounded by so lush and vivid greenery.
Have a nice day
mirosu (16273) 2013-12-13 3:54
Excellent old stone bridge close-up photo with very well balanced colors, perfect light, very good clarity. The well-chosen tight crop eliminates all unwanted distractions. Well done.
adramad (46504) 2013-12-13 5:12
A wonderful composition, with this corner of nature, where everything is green and beauty, this lovely stone bridge over the creek, is a magical natural spot.
A colorful perfect very natural.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Good job. I love it.
Enjoy a good weekend.
dkmurphys (60031) 2013-12-13 10:29
I like this composition form the nature. The old bridge looks charming. Well taken, have a good weekend.

what a charming nook in the forest, the old bridge seems to have completely merged with nature. Love the greens dominating the scene. Very, very attractive!
Have a great weekend!
kato (11630) 2013-12-13 20:12
You're capturing well this nature place by a good composition, a good perspective and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the cute budge on the blook and surrounding natute with deep green and trees. It's also tasteful for green moss on the stone. It is the calm world with the good air.
amaryllis (37039) 2013-12-14 1:43
Ce pont est superbe de par sa forme en arche, situe dans un environnement boisé.
Un endroit superbe avec de gros rochers et un beau cadrage
NorthernLight (2383) 2013-12-14 3:35
an enchanted place with a strong atmosphere. As out of a fairytale. You have captured the magic of this place skillfully.
Well seen and presented!
All the best
ourania (47136) 2013-12-14 9:07
είχα περάσει μικρή κάποιες καλοκαιρινές διακοπές στην Τσαγκαράδα, θυμάμαι τα χρώματα και τη φρεσκάδα του τοπίου αλλά όχι πολλές λεπτομέρειες. Μου αρέσει πάρα πολύ αυτό το σημείο που παρουσιάζεις σ' αυτή τη φωτογραφία. ΄Εχεις απομονώσει το γεφύρι και τον άμεσο περιβάλλοντα χώρο, η εικόνα σου αποδίδει πολύ πιστά τις υφές, τα χρώματα και την ατμόσφαιρα τόυ τόπου. Οι απαιτήσεις του φωτισμού δημιουργούν δυσκολίες, μα κατάφερες να αποδώσεις το φιλτραρισμένο από τη βλαστηση φως εξαιρετικά. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό Σαββατοκύριακο,
saxo042 (37900) 2013-12-14 9:23
A beautiful old bridge, hardly visible in these surroundings. Dark and attractive colours, in a pleasant harmony.
Silvio1953 (145645) 2013-12-14 10:39
Ciao Danos, great vioew of beautiful old bridge, lovely composition, splendid light and wonderful warm colors, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
Waylim (25502) 2013-12-14 16:10
Charming bridge, almost looks like a secrete place where people have forgotten about. as the plants and vegetation grow around it. It almost blending in with the nature. A lovely shady place for the summer to stay cool. I love the green leave with light shinning through. Excellent control on the light and shadow.
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2013-12-15 6:10
namaste, a nice old arched bridge here. Great atmosphere. I really enjoyed the damp atmosphere in such woods. Great colour tone and nice sharpness achieved in such low light condition. Excellent work. Tfs.
Kielia (24077) 2013-12-15 6:12
you are presenting a very moody view of the ancient bridge. Tsagarada must be a nice place for outdoors activities. The colors are contributing to the special atmosphere of this place. A very pleasant and inviting image. My compliments!
willperrett (11084) 2013-12-15 9:49
What a charming place. I guess the bridge is part of an old Venetian trading route. At least it looks exactly like several bridges in Cyprus built apparently by the Venetians. Here is one I posted earlier: very similar design I think you'll agree!
jcpix (13930) 2013-12-15 13:18
This has such a wonderful medieval and fairytale atmosphere about it. A simple bridge in the forest, but it holds great character and charm. Set in the most natural of environments it blends in nicely, and is almost hidden in pain sight. :) Beautifully exposed to show all of the color, detail and texture contained within. These are often instances where the light is difficult to balance, but you found just the right touch, everything appears just as it should. Hope you've had a pleasant weekend.

Δάνο, ενα τοπίο για ζωγράφους..μια μαγεία μέσασ τήν φύση της περιοχής πού άρεσε πολύ στον πατέρα μου και πηγαίναμε για πεζοπορία και αναρρίχηση...πολύ ομορφη η ανακάλυψη σου το μικρό παμπάλαιο γεφυράκι..ομόρφυνε τήν ηδη εντυπωσιακή φωτογραφία σου!!
Royaldevon (39740) 2013-12-16 3:42
This is the sort of place that we have in our memories from childhood, whether real or imaginary! I like the way you have set it, with a guiding tree in the f/g to link with the b/g tree and, ultimately, the quaint, fairy bridge.
You have captured the colours beautifully with just the right amount of sharpness.
Have a lovely day,
Cricri (120537) 2013-12-16 11:11
Un endroit sauvage bien présenter avec le vieux pont et les rochers, ça bon la fraicheur et la nature, belle présentation
Miguel82 (27646) 2013-12-17 0:49
A nice nature picture Danos, an old bridge made with stones in the forest, a humid place as there are so many moss everywhere, excellent hues and resolution, all the best, thanks, warm regards
geoant68 (331) 2013-12-17 2:02
εξαιρετική παρουσίαση του παλιού αυτού γεφυριού της Τσαγκαράδας,με το έξοχο φωτισμό ν' απογειώνει την χρωματική πανδαισία.Οι λεπτομέρειες και η ομορφιά του τοπίου είναι μοναδικές,
mkamionka (37831) 2013-12-17 13:20
great presentation of this lovely old bridge. I admire your well balanced exposition here under very challenging light conditions. It feels a bit like in a rain forest with abundant green vegetation around the bridge. Very well thought through composition, Excellent work,

Geia sou Danos
You found a bridge in the 'Nottingham Forest' that appears as a stone jewel built by the mythical Robin Hood of the medieval period!!
It appears as a treasure set in a green velvet case and I can easily imagine a lady holding a white umbrella crossing the stream on this attractive footbridge!
An intense mood of serenity!
abmdsudi (55168) 2013-12-18 18:51
This is so lovely and interesting old mossy stone bridge in lush green environment, bet that bridge could tell some tales! Love the way nature is taking control, the foreground rocks and abound of detail even under the arch. Like the comp and colours, excellent exposure and contrasting earthy-green colours is well rendered, and plenty for the eye. Wonderful serene capture, Congrats
jemaflor (98771) 2013-12-19 8:25
Good angle to take this very old bridge, good light management and interesting result with these two trees.
claudeD (39625) 2013-12-19 9:08
very fine picture from Greece with an excellent composition, fine colors andsharpness. I like the picture very much.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
ChrisJ (115555) 2013-12-20 2:04
I like the angled pov on the old stone bridge and the use of the fg trees to frame the subject. Good sharpness with well managed backlighting. The sunlit rocky stream bed nicely guides the eye towards the bridge. Tfs!
Didi (60588) 2013-12-20 3:51
Vey nice view on the old bridge who have braved the centuries
I like the green ambiance
Kind regards and Merry Christmas

Very nice capture of this bridge and the trees, the bridge looks very old. Good lighting and nice details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
maloutim (9639) 2013-12-23 15:21
I love the atmosphere of underwoods. You have captured this scene masterfully, with optimum management of light and shade.
I would like to be there under the picturesque bridge, enjoying the quiet, listening to the music of the flowing stream, and maybe quenching my thirst by drinking the cool water.
Thanks for sharing.
delpeoples (58600) 2013-12-26 19:43
Kalispera dear Danos
Ahh this is so beautiful, right out of a fairytale and a landscape that looks more like Scotland than Greece! Beautiful light and shade, deep colours and excellent framing. A delightful photo. I hope you and your family had a merry Christmas and I wish you every happiness in 2014.
zoomer (6) 2013-12-29 15:50

The bridge has sprang out of Alice's wonderland!
And what an atmosphere. It must be an adventurers' paradise.
Wonderful find in the forest and a great shot with superb colors and outstanding management of light/shade that creates the fairy-tale feeling.
Thanks for sharing,
With warm regards,
