(Moan) I have no idea as to what to upload, really......
...my last upload was sort of out-of-season, wasn´t it ;-)

Amyway, I really liked the look of this bridge when I saw it - with this almost roman-style vaulting :-D.
(I was driving northward through Norway, (and then east) on my way to Sweden at the time. This is actually right by the UNESCO world heritage site, the town of Röros in the northern part of Norway.

The is the "Bergan" bridge in the "old king´s road" and was built in 1840.
I kept the original colour on the stones of the bridge, but removed the colour of the surroundings to keep focus on the bridge.

It is a fantastic shot, thanks for the effort...

It tells more than many words can or would explain...
It really says a lot about local artisans it is a work of art in itself... much work and dedication constructing a bridge of this nature it had to be perfect and more likely will last a very long time....
It is very pleasant to see not like new concrete bridges... this work is not being done anymore...
Happy new year...

This is lovely. I am always amazed at how they built these stone bridges and buildings without mortar etc. Well done. I love the effect of the coloured stones and the monochrome background. Well done.

It's lovely. I guess I see everything from a poetic point of view. I am struck by the coldness of it (I mean that in a good way). The coldness of the rock but also the winter all around it. Right now we are having 95 degree weather, so cold feels good to me :>)

A poetic view sounds very good to me, Sene :-)
The picture is actually taken quite far up north in Norway, so the flora and fauna are all somewhat tundra-like.
