Another shot from my holidays in Scotland. I spotted this little bridge as we were driving towards Oban. Conviniently there was a place by the road where you could stop, so I did and took a few shots. On this occasion the weather was on my side, so I did get a bit of blue sky.
The shot has been slightly cropped, colours adjusted and saturated and sharpened. Also added a border.

Very nice photo! I wonder how old is this bridge

Nice photo with good depth, interesting colors of the stones under the bridge, is this light pink due to your post processing or to the time of the day ?
I would maybe have enlarged the view to include the immediate surroundings of the bridge.
Scotland is certainly a nice place to visit !

A very nice image, Francis, the bridge in wonderful nature stone work, on the background the green mountains with a blue sky and clouds. Sharp and clear. Excellent holiday photo.

A lovely shot of the well weathered bridge, i like the plants growing out of the bridge and the river bank looking through the arch. I wondered what this would look like if the sky was taken off, so I tried a WS, which is particularly nasty of me as you at least managed some blue sky!

Great shot Francis. Scotland is fantastic and your picture supports this statement. The roughness of the hills and the stone bridge match perfectly in this frame. Very clear shot, well done!

Country shots don't come much better than this. Three things stand out: you've got the lighting dead on; the green has an almost New Zealand-ish quality to it, and the architecture of the bridge is quintessentially Scottish. Quaint indeed!

Superb shot with a nice lght. The rocky texture of the bridge is really well rendered due to the excellent picture sharpness. Superb colors. Good work !

Everything is great here - the rolling green hills, the correctly exposed sky and the animated water in the clear light. The place feels very much alive, but also the bridge gives the feeling of some history in the landscape. Great shot
