"When you're weary
When tears are in your eyes
I will dry them all
I'm on your side
When times get rough
And friends just can't be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down"
(Simon & Garfunkel)
A classic & beautiful 1970's anthem to illustrate today's flood picture, which is the ancient Bridge at Stopham spanning the swollen troubled waters of the River Arun in West Sussex, England.
"Sail on Silver Girl
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way………."

Nice POV ancient bridge! Nice framing with the bridge on one side in order to give space to the reflections on the river! Belli also the trees on the bottom that will stand out on the cloudy sky!
Best regards! Nino.

another very good presentation. I like the curve of the bridge which acted as a leading line. The reflection is superb. Great capture with fine depth and sharpness. Very good work done. Tfs.

This duo was a very good singers duo, one of my favourites, Simon & Garfunkel.
Your picture is taken out of a very well angle, this create depth and perspective.
Wonderful panorama view, in high quality.
Your picture is very pleasant to look at.
Excellent composition, with pleasant colours.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

I love that bridge but the water does not look very troubled ;-)Very good POV - the delicate curve of the stone wall leads an eye further towards the trees. The tiny branches on the left frame the image in natural way. All the colors got pretty warm tones thanks to this beautiful light.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice day

You're talking to my youth there !

Yeah I can recognise the bridge well form your previous posts, although a very attractive view over here from your well chosen POV. Good natural framing with these dry branches and part of the bridge railing. Fine contrast between the overcast sky and your signature warm light. Like it a lot. Thanks for sharing.

una luce fantastica, un ponte molto antico e affascinante, un bel taglio verticale e il tutto accompagnato da una bella canzone.
Bel colpo, tutto perfetto.

An interesting note and a delightful photograph which captures the beauty of warm light of a winter's afternoon although the sight of floodwaters like this is depressing.
Gorgeous light on the face of the bridge and excellent composition with the roadway and the wall of the bridge leading us to the horizon and beautiful trees beneath a wonderful sky.
Gorgeous light and colours, perfect exposure and your usual exquisite details and sharpness.

superbe photo. Une très belle composition avec de belles couleurs, une belle lumière. La photo est très nette et une atmosphère très agréable s'en dégage. Félicitations!

un altro gran bel colpo dominato dalla luce calda e dai colori dosati in maniera splendida.
Composizione e taglio sempre perfetti.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Now the water under that gorgeous bridge doesn't look to troubled indeed. But I get your drift with the latest heavy rainfalls in the area. The light is very pleasing too here.
have a great weekend

I like this song very much. Excellent illustration, it is a moody song as well as your photo. Simply beautiful

Flood brings suffering for the people and losses, but also unusual photo possibilities. Wonderful photo in marvelous colours.
Good night M

Ces inondations certainement peu agréables ont été pour toi l'occasion de réaliser de superbes images. Celle-ci ma plait particulièrement par sa composition et sa luminosité...et aussi par la référence à Simon et Garfunkel qui me rappelle toute ma jeunesse!
Nicou (125220) 2014-02-01 22:25

Excellent light, excellent composition. From this image I get the feeling of warmth from the sun on an otherwise cold winter's day.
The reflections are superb.

A beautiful picture that allows the eye to wander virtually. Well seen and well composed.

Although the bridge has a nice POV, the trees on the right attract me, with their curvy branches and eerie presence. Excellent!
npecanhuk (67520) 2014-02-02 12:07
A song I really like!
A picture I truly enjoyed!
Sharpness, exposure, (wonderful) colors, (suitable) vertical format, very well chosen pov and composition are all excellent photo qualities that certainly pleased me a lot!
TFS - congrats,

Your flooded landscapes are so special Brian and you, at least, are turning the tragedy into an opportunity! This watery-world is quite beautiful; excellent light, a well-detailed bridge which leads us to the variety of trees standing tall against a stormy sky. Beautiful! Warm regards rosemary

Amazing photo. Excellent light management , beautiful colors !!
krzychu30 (15510) 2014-02-04 0:17
beautiful and with enclosed text in your note very atmospheric composition!
Love your perspective here,which is very creative,but I think the light is the feature here,which makes the shot so unique and captivating.
Have a nice day

Super but sad scene.

Picking one picture in your amazing gallery was no easy task, but I especially like this one. The stone bridge gently leads the attention of the viewer across the whole picture, from the background to the trees in the background. Everything is perfectly reflected on the water below. There is plenty of details to indulge on, and the colours are rich but perfectly balanced.
Perfect DOF and an absolutely great choice of POV.
