A894 Kylesku Bridge was opened in 1984, and replaced the old ferry route between banks. It looks lightweight, but is 276m long.

Hello Bartlomiej ,
For sure , that is a important way of communication . Nevertheless , it is not so harmonious , in this so gorgeous landscape .
Excellent point of view and good capture of the light despite of the cloudy weather .

A beautiful view and a well composed shot too but I can't help agreeing with Denis in that it would be better without the bridge! Although the bridge is fine and certainly serves a useful purpose, nonetheless I don't think it really is in keeping with the beautiful scenery here.
It is a very long time since I was last at this place - many years before that bridge was built, and I very well remember the little ferry that used to take passengers and cars across the water.
But your picture is beautiful - lovely colours - bright reds and yellows in the foreground, the purplish hills beyond, and a lovely sky.
As usual, perfectly exposed and pin-sharp.

interesujace miejsce i dobra prezentacja mostu. Interesujaca masz szuflade. Ladne jesienne kolory, to chyba wrzosowiska.

Hello Bartlomiej - I have to agree, this bridge is hardly a memorable piece of architecture but for travellers it must be a god-send. A well composed and managed shot with wonderful natural colours. I am off to Scotland in 4 weeks time and look forward to seeing beautiful views like this. Best regards Rosemary

un endroit d'écosse peu connu, et pourtant, il ne manque ni de beauté, ni de pittoresque avec ce pont moderne dans ces montagnes d'une rare beauté dépourvues d'arbres.

attractive wide-angle view of the bridge combined with various colours and tones of Nature and skies.
