Bridge Wednesday - Into the Darkness

Cape Creek Bridge, Coastal Highway 101, Oregon  © Doug Hickok

This arched bridge, reminiscent of an ancient Roman aqueduct, disappears into the Stygian shadows of a mountain ridge as daylight fades to night. Who knows where the road may lead, or what lies ahead... perhaps only the Fates can say.

  8. The most beautiful play of light and unique composition that make this such a charm and mystery! Refreshing and masterful work!

  9. The bridge is lit in an interesting way, and your composition crop is nice, but your comment is a real hoot - a good parody of an old-time rasio soap.

  11. very mystical and mysterious ... who knows indeed? well observed, doug, and turned into a striking image!
    (i had a similar 'revelation' once when driving in the dolomites, when we came upon a mountain that was literally vanishing into thin air! you can see it in my portfolio, if you like, under http://atticus.aminus3.com/image/2010-12-11.html !)

  14. It's a strong picture with an open eye. I like you interpretation of it, the mystery that comes out of vanishing into nothingness. The low afternoon sun makes for some lovely light. Maybe the road doesn't lead to darkness, but comes out of darkness?

  15. Does fate really exist, D?
    What is fate?
    If giving up on chocolate can save the world, I might give it a go. ;o)
