This photo was taken on our way back from the Scottish Open in Castle Stuart, the rain had been that heavy in the north of Scotland that the Golf had been called off for the full Saturday, this is very unusual indeed for a full days golf to be called off, this scene shows how much water came down. Sorry I,m not sure where the bridge was.

bella ripresa di questo impetuoso fiume d'acqua sotto il ponte.
Ottima resa cromatica dell'immagine

this is a very dynamic impression, one can almost feel the power of the water! Excellently working POV on this normally small flowing creek that became a raging river after the heavy rain. The colors are fascinating – but most of all I like the old bridge. My compliments!

Hello Wilson, the inclusion of so much turbulent water makes that rather rickety bridge seem more vulnerable than ever!
A very nice shot with plenty of atmosphere.
Best regards Les.

quelle compo superbe, quel flot d'eau important et cette couleur presque rouge, superbe iamge avec ce pont de pierres, splendide.
Bravo et amitié

Before reading the note, I already could guess there were heavy showers, because of the strong current and I hope the old bridge will survive it ;) Interesting contrasts between the white foam and the brownish tones.

Perhaps a small but a very beautiful stone bridge!
Looking at this picture the old bridge is clearly threatened in its future existence.
Your picture shows very well the power of water and the fragility of human structures in extraordinary weather conditions.
I don't know where you were standing when you took the picture but I would not be standing too close to the waterfront.
Best regards, Paul

Ce petit pont de pierre malgré son aspect peu massif semble résister aux assauts répétés d'une rivière en furie.
Le bouillonnement, le tournoiement des eaux, l'écume, l'ensemble participe à bien présenter la force de l'eau.
Très bonne prise de vue.

Seems more like a winter photo! I like it, the movement of the brownish water, the old bridge in ruins that seems about to fall down at any time.Well captured, with good colours and sharpness!

Hi Wilson, long time I haven't seen you here. Wow, after rain in short time we have view like this. It reminds me Petra in Jordan, the small stream in just some minutes became a river like this. Nice arch bridge, seems very delicate over this roaring water.

Excellent composition and quality. A beautiful image. Well done.

Superbe capture de ce courant d'eau de la rivière et de ce petit pont de vielles pierres, beaux contraste des couleurs, bravo pour le POV

This is an amazing piece of ancient engineering!
The flooding river adds drama to the scene, and the presentation is well composed with fine details...
This is a fine documentary to show the old bridge and its function!

welcome back at the site,with this beautiful scenery from this small river,with he stone arch to connect the two sides of it.I like the beauty of the scene as the good presentation.
Have a good weekend,Danos

Hello Wilson, It's difficult to imagine that the old stone bridge could resist the forces of nature, but I guess it has done so for many years. Unfortunate that the golf was cancelled, long drive for nothing? Nice, interesting shot with the drama well captured.
siolaw (38294) 2011-11-12 9:33
Wow.. a very special bridge and a lot of water there! Amazing how this bridge could remain in one piece after all these years and all the water!
rodgerg (55767) 2011-11-13 0:54
Excellent framing for show the graphic effect of this old and well incurving stone's birdge. POV well selcetd too with the river in the Fg which give an impressive rythm.
Have a nice Sunday,
TopGeo (38216) 2011-11-16 10:52
Hello Wilson! Impressed by the dynamic and the old stone bridge! Good framework focuses attention on water and dirty and wild motion!Excellent idea of POV
mesutilgim (97712) 2011-11-16 11:37
Very nice capture, well seen and composed.
The viewer can even hear the roaring water :-))
TFS and best regards

Long time no see, I hope you're keeping well. What a characteristic old stone bridge. It looks so frail amidst all that water, I'm surprised it's stood for so long. Excellent POV oo, it's not often we see the water rushing like that directly at us. Good natural colours and control of the shutter.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely day

une photo qui rend parfaitement le tumulte et la puissance des eaux, c'est impressionnant et on se rend compte qu'il vaut mieux ne pas y tomber.
Une excellente exploitation de lumières difficiles.
Angshu (56760) 2012-02-22 2:06
Good to see you after a very long time!
Nice picture of the muddy water rushing underneath the old stone bridge.

Apparently you've had some wild wet & windy weather in the UK this Spring. Good framing on the bridge & turbulent flood waters. Effective tight framing yet still with sufficient breathing space. The diffused light has permitted maximum shadow detail. Tfs!
npecanhuk (78901) 2012-05-11 17:29
A (small) bridge over troubled water... like that song!
That's a beautiful and interesting picture!
Special regards to the chosen pov, composition, colors and exposure!
TFS - congrats,

I was just checking the Scottish Gallery looking for tips for our next holidays in May and I think I found the location of this lovely old bridge.
Turn down Station Road in Carrbridge which branches off the main street beside the remarkable old packhorse bridge, built in 1717 and still missing its parapets after the terrible floods of 1829 - known as the 'Muckle Spate' and probably the worst ever experienced in Scotland.
From: Highland Walks
Great picture, even if you could have framed higher to give more impact from the bridge...
