Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

My photograph, today, shows a very unusual, very old bridge. This is the Clam Bridge at Wycoller.

It is a single, large slab of stone which spans the beck. It is believed that this slab of stone was once a large standing stone (menhir) and was moved to accommodate the crossing.

The stone is dated to the Iron Age and, as such, is over 2,000 years old.

I took this photograph yesterday, early to mid morning. There was a curious mist lingering in Wycoller valley but occasionally the sun broke through. On such a moment, I managed to get a shot of the bridge. As you can see, the bridge is in dappled light whilst the fields and hills in the background are swathed in mist.
It created a very haunting atmosphere!

Have a lovely Sunday and thank you for visiting my photograph, Bev :-)
