A one point perspective with a clearly marked vanishing point effect - one of my very favourite themes!
A pedestrian and car bridge crossing the Pas river, in the valley of the same name, Cantabria. A beautifully green region of Spain, even in the summer months that turn the rest of the peninsula into an arid dustbowl.
Cantabria, and other northern regions like Galicia, Asturias and Pais Vasco, maintain a much cooler and wetter climate thanks to it's mountains and the atlantic ocean of their coast.
The bridge is an interesting construction of riveted steel - with a hard wooden planks making up the platform. The noise when a car or a lorry passes over is absolutely terrifying to the pedestrian!
A leaden overcast day made the colour photograph quite uninteresting - the sky was a solid greyish white colour in both versions... nothing for it except to try B/W. A spot of curve correction and colour balance, and hey presto!

Interesantan tekst o mostu, lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazana konstrukcija mosta.
Prijatno vece i lepa noc, sve njabolje.
An interesting article on the bridge, nice view and a moment ...
Good time recording, contrast and perspective, nice bridge structure is shown.
Have a nice evening and night, all the best.

El blanco y negro es una buena solucion cuando la luz , y particularmente el cielo, no esta fotogénico. La simetria y la perspectiva ofrecen un punto de vista mas espectacular sobre este puente original.

The geometrical lines, the sense of depth and your treatment in B&W made this photo an excellent shot. Nice work. :-)
