Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Lines

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is about Lines : http://www.ceephotography.com/2012/12/04/4320/#comments

My favourite picture on Lines was taken earlier this year while travelling in Switzerland. As someone who likes bridges of all kinds : suspension bridges, cable stayed bridges, simple beam slab bridges, arch bridges, suspended rope bridges, footbridges, medieval stone bridges to the very primitive form of simple stream crossing bridges.DSCF1124

This photo shows some vertical supporting members springing from the curved arch of a  motorway bridge in Switzerland. The vertical supports with their strong vertical lines contrast sharply with the curve arch. The strong vertical lines also match nicely with the finer vertical lines from the guard rail and the vertical lines on the bridge parapets.

On a bright day, the bridge stands gracefully against a green background of trees, some high snow capped mountains further back and a blue sky dotted with clouds. Altogether, this gives the bridge a pleasing three-dimensional feel.

  1. I haven’t had the pleasure of traveling to as many locations as we hope to in the future, but we were lucky to visit Switzerland in 2008 and loved it so much. It seemed idyllic, small towns, beautiful lakes, lots of farms and forests. I’d live there in a heartbeat. I really loved you photo as it shows Switzerland to be full of nature with all the forest and mountains but very up to date with great roads and hi-ways too.

    • Hi Boomdeeadda, in my view, think those live in Switzerland are really blessed. They have got so many beautiful places, free from wars, great infrastruture and a high standard of living. What else can we ask? Of course, I wouldn’t like the snow and the cold in Winter. Regards, Michael
