A bit of a cliché but I couldn't resist!
Returning from a long hike in the Morsá valley (Skaftafell park) to visit the Morsárjökull glacier, we crossed over this bridge just before sunset (around 9.30). I liked the way the low sun brought out the golden colours of the wood.

Bellissimi i colori della passerella ottimamente in contrasto con tutto il grigio intorno:

Glad you didn't resist John!
Cliché with style then:-), no really, it is very beautiful. Great pov, leading us to infinity at the horizon, over this tiny lovely bridge, around, well it is Iceland, what more to say ? :-), great texture of the wood, the light is marvellous and everything razor sharp and so natural. My compliments, this goes to my favorites.

I like the symmetry but it is the ominous sky that makes the image for me. The fact that the bridge leads to a dark, obfuscated horizon adds to the tension.

I should now take away the points I gave to the Driftwood and add them here, since this is clearly better ;-). Slightly cliché, but wonderful. Love the detail on the wood. Nice combination with the heavy clouds!

I really wouldn't mind seeing cliches like this one more often, if I may say so. :) Excellent compo and colour contrast. Great combination of brown and blue, they soo go together. Really nice work!
Best regards, Jeri

A cliche yes but it is still a magnificent shot. The lighting is soft and muted with lots of DOF. Very well composed.

Maybe cliche, but very beautiful done. The sky is very impressive and the depth you create by your low POV fantastique.
