It was one of the brightest full moons I can remember. Caught in the twilight, that time before night but after the day had spent it's energy, was this perfect bridge. It seemed like an animation, so perfect, so inviting. A bridge is built to take you somewhere. This bridge, half lit, half shaded shared the twilight as the darkness ever so slowly encroached on both of us. After the picture was taken, I walked across the bridge in the full moonlight. Touching the bricks, the stones along the way just to make sure it was not a figment of my imagination. It was a perfect bridge.

What a beautiful bridge! How I'd love to see it in person. Like you I'd be touching it just to reconfirm to my brain that it is indeed real.

Beautifully done!

Monica,

Thank you for commenting on the photograph. Actually you can see the bridge. It is in Animal kingdom at Disney in Florida! It really is a beautiful piece of work and the timing for me was just right. It is one of my favorite pictures.

Your photo and writing invite me to that bridge, Mr. Felstead :o>. Really, what a warm and illuminating place this looks to be. I want to be there, to walk ever so slowly across and marvel at each little bit (just as you said you did).

You've got the eye for appreciation of God's Handiwork...for sure.

ha- I just read your comment above. I never would have guessed it was from Disney...not in a million.

Heather,
Yes, I would like to think it was a bridge in Nepal or some other secluded setting! However, this particular setting at the time was magical. The photo was taken after the park closed down and we (My wife and I) were one of the few people still left in the park and we were transported to a bit of solitude which at any other time was quite chaotic.

There's a stunning diffused glow to this photo.

Another stunner.

Thanks for sharing Dan.

Sacha,

Thanks for the comment. I have tried since to duplicate the surreal effect of this photo but so far have been unsuccessful. To me it looks like CGI but in fact it is a real photograph!

Disney! Well, they like to do things right but, I'd never have quessed it to be in a theme park. You really had the perfect timing and light. Maybe you should show someone at Disney.
