this is my next photo from TE-meeting with Atalay Bulent in Virginia. This is the bridge over the Rappahannock River.
The Rappahannock River is a river in eastern Virginia, in the United States, approximately 195 miles (314 km) in length. It traverses the entire northern part of the state, from the Blue Ridge Mountains in the west, across the Piedmont, to the Chesapeake Bay, south of the Potomac River.
An important river in American history, the Rappahannock was the site of early settlements in the Virginia Colony, and, later, was at the center of a major theatre of battle in the American Civil War. Due to its significance as an obstacle to north-south movements, it in effect functioned as the war's eastern-theatre boundary, between the "North" (the Union) and the "South" (the Confederate States of America).

Hi Serguei, very good symmetry in this picture using the interesting reflection in the river, very well captured in this interesting image, with good sharpness, depth, light and color. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good afternoon and happy week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

J'aime beaucoup la construction de cette image. Si on la tourne à 180 degrés on voit exactement la même chose tellement l'eau est calme comme un miroir.

Nice composition, with the second bridge inside the circle formed by the first bridge and his reflection
Nicely observed and realised ;)

A spectacular scene along the river. I like the pov and the calm atmosphere. Well taken.

FANTASTIC composition, Serghei! I am curious about what time of day this was. I have always read that the water is most still in the early morning.
Again, I really love the doubled arches forming perfect circles. WELL DONE!

Fine view of this concrete arch bridge crossing the Rappahannock, especially the mirrored reflection creating circles, with landscaping for contrast.
PS: OK Mr. Engineer, what is the energy coefficient of an all electric car? I really like the fact they use renewable energy and they have no spark plugs, transmission, etc. to maintain.

A great composition. The conditions for superb reflections were perfect and you grabbed the moment well. The light is very good and the colours are very nicely mild.

Two bridges and their reflections! You have managed to include a lot of bridge in this attractive picture. Of course, this was made possible with this perfect mirror the water provided on this calm day. The composition here is excellent.

A circle and a box within. The other circle is broken by the frame of tree. All halves made full with reflections. Great Pov.
Excellent colors and sharpness too.
Very well done.

I love bridges ;)
Excellent cimopsition and POV.
I like it.
worldcitizen (7119) 2013-10-22 15:37
Great reflections! I like it when reflected arches combine with real ones to make a circle. :-) I also like the trees on the left side and behind the bridge. This is a peaceful scene with an elegant presentation.
emka (80772) 2013-10-22 23:23
Hi Srerghei, I am sure you learned a lot about the history of Virginia from Bulent. Perfect composition, I like the result of reflections of the arches. Pleasant autumn colours.
I am back home with no plans for further trips :(.
jhm (140563) 2013-10-23 2:33
This is a very nice remembrance with the meeting with Prof Atalay.
I like these nice picture with the arches of the bridge.
Also the reflections be superb.
High quality picture with pleasant autumn colours beside the bridge.
Composition and presentation make this picture excellent.
Very well done, TFS.

A beautiful perfectly symmetrical reflection here, a fine capture indeed of this wonderful piece of engineering. I love that you got the trees on the left in this composition, it adds a great sensation of life to the inanimate structure. Great idea, cheers
All the best
macjake (57344) 2013-10-23 12:21
how could anyone not want to photograph this one!!
easy to see why it caught your attention.
absolutely love the oversized arches, and the circle is complete with the water reflection.
excellent shot indeed!
krzychu30 (15498) 2013-10-23 13:40
perfect symmetry and lovely,calm reflections create here strong and eye-catching visual effect.
And what´s equally important-it´s quite unknown side of the USA(at least here on TE),so it fits perfectly in TE´s mission to discover and share with other´s new destinations.
Magnificent memory from your meeting with Bulent!
Wish You all the best

Hello Serghei - A fine composition with a lovely symmetrical reflection. I do like the bridge theme and both bridges have completely different shapes which adds interest. Warm regards Rosemary
