Well not actually on the bridge, but in this shot it looks like it could be. This is another view of the swollen River Arun as it passes under the ancient bridge at Stopham in West Sussex, England. A Grade I listed monument that has spanned the river since 1432.

superbes, le paysage, la lumière, les couleurs, les reflets dans la rivière. Une très belle mise en aleur dd ce paysage.

Like the dual feature of this nice photo. I see the nice warm light on the old bridge and I also see the threatening black skies in the BG and I wonder where this light is coming from. Very atmospheric and moody composition with the old bridge, the big tree, the black sky and the wonderful light. Excellent! Thanks for sharing.

Good Morning Brian,
We both have bridges, today, but yours looks to be nearly under water whereas mine has water that is just normally high.
The light is remarkable and creates the most beautiful hues on the water as it reflects the bridge.
You have good balance between the tree in the f/g and that in the b/g.
Have a great w/e,

Again that wonderful water-world and sublime light and colours Brian. Beautiful crop and a fine shot with which to remember the wettest winter in centuries! How can something so lovely create such devastation? Have a good weekend Rosemary

Another superb image from you. I like the square crop and, most especially, that wonderful dramatic lighting. Top class technical presentation.

Hello Brian - as you alluded in your comment on my recent shot, we've certainly both had dramatic and unfortunate winters. I hope the waters begin to recede soon there, but at least they afforded you this beautiful shot, with the bridge bathed in light reflected in those high waters. And an optical illusion along with it!

Il Sussex è una vera miniera di soggetti sia che si tratti della campagna che delle zone costiere.
Anche in questa la luce calda del sole compie il miracolo di incontrarsi con un cielo tempestoso creando il solito piacevole effetto di tinte belle e sature e di colori splendenti.
Ancora una volta una eccellente ripresa.
Ciao e buon fine settimana
jemaflor (88179) 2014-02-21 7:12
Lovely light and reflections on water, well managed, so pleasant result, congratulations.

janneman (2660) 2014-02-21 9:55

gran bella foto, il ponte con i suoi riflessi è fantastico, si vedono bene le linee lasciate dalla piena in più volte.
Meraviglioso l'albero alle sue spalle, ma sarebbe bastato un qualsiasi scatto fatto al riflesso per apprezzarne i colori e le deformazioni.
kasianowak (7409) 2014-02-21 13:55
The kind of light photographers dream of! I love the contrast between the warm colours of the bridge and the dark sky. The reflection is very beautiful.
Have a nice weekend
macjake (59970) 2014-02-21 17:54
you know what i like about this one the most? the light and soft reflections on the water.
there's a golden glow thats very easy to fall in love with.
and as for the stone bridge, its killer. love how there's various colors depending on how high or low the stones are - like geology! haha
Is the water level high here? the 2 smaller arches are almost totally covered.
very cool shot and attractive post processing.
see you around

Très belle image de ce vieux pont qui se reflète dans l'eau. La présence du gros arbre est un plus. La luminosité donne un bel effet à l'ensemble. Bien fait.
jjcordier (78372) 2014-02-21 22:30
Superbe! La lumière est splendide sur le pont et le magnifique arbre et on admire la beauté des reflets.

A lovely contrast with the bridge and tree.
Wonderful panorama view about these wonderful area.
Sharpness and colours are very pleasant to look at.
Composition and presentation are of high quality.
Very well done, TFS.

HimalAnda (10141) 2014-02-22 1:24
The colors, the light, the composition... I like a lot of elements in this picture!
annjackman (20539) 2014-02-22 2:54
Another wonderful photo of this ancient bridge. The light and colours are exceptional. Gorgeous!
Kind Regards, Ann
krzychu30 (15510) 2014-02-22 14:46
wonderful scene,that brings me in very "dreamy"mood.
The subject is captivating,but I think I´m not the only one,who will tell you it´s combination of light and colors,which makes the scene so atmospheric and delightuful.
Have a nice sunday
ChrisJ (102789) 2014-02-23 17:57
Excellent colour, sharpness and saturation, with wonderful warm cold colour contrasts between the yellow ochre colored stone bridge and the blue sky and reflected blue skylight in the fg river. Good depth and well composed. Tfs!
Kamilutka (8103) 2014-02-23 21:12
interesting shape of this tree and the way it is positioned in the picture makes this photo quite original. The reflections of he sun mixed with delicate shadows on the bridge definitely add to the final stunning result. Lovely colors and very well handled light.
All the best!
adores (39894) 2014-03-19 15:50
It's a very beautiful old bridge and a very good shot! Seems the water is still very high. I like the reflections and the different tonalities of the bridge, thanks to the floods. The tree also adds a lot to the composition. Very good colours!
