i am sooo happy i am not a judge, these are all spectacular, so many different types of bridges. you should give Sharon the Terror Award. YIKES i got a stomach ache looking at hers. good photo but subject scared me silly. when i told you i had no bridge, i was thinking car bridge, i have tons of foot bridges but none of them could beat these.

Where's my photo? *sniff*

The Retired One said...

Peter: Thankyou so much for letting me know I forgot to include your photograph. I found your email in my computer and reposted the blogpost. I have not contacted any judges yet, so your photo will have just as much of a chance when I do contact them at the end of this week. My apologies and good luck!!

Joanie said...

All the photos are wonderful. When I saw Nat's bridge, I just sighed. and smiled. I love this one!

Joanie said...

Forgot to add something. I'd love to know the locations of these bridges. Only one has the location in the blog title (Pictures of Ireland).

Arti said...

Just am awesome collection of photos...
A small suggestion - why not ask the participants to give the name of the place where the pic is taken, or the name of the thing in picture, in this case the bridge...
Have a nice day:-)

Betsy Banks Adams said...

Wow Joan---this may be the best overall group yet... I would hate to choose a winner from this group!!!!! Good Luck to the judges.

Unknown said...

those are such awesome photos! (And yes, I actually was the photographer for mine!)

Country Gal said...

All such wonderful photos. This is what our photography club does, one member each meeting picks a photo challenge for the club to do its fun! Good luck everyone I couldnt pick just one they are all great !Have a wonderful day !

Linda Reeder said...

A great selection. Very stiff competition!

Sharon Wagner said...

I had to laugh at Sandra's comment. It really WAS a scary hike. The reward was a huge waterfall at the end. I'll have to do a blog post on it. Wow, so many great entries this time.

Paz said...

@ Joanie my bridge is in the Nephin Range mountains in Co Mayo, West coast of Ireland
Agree with the comments I would not like to pick one
@ the retired one, sorry that I do not comment that often, but I do visit, mostly when out and about on my mobile and too fiddly to comment

These are great photos. For those of you who have been wondering where these are taken, mine was taken in Kiso Valley Japan in the Nagano Prefecture.
I have to give a shout out to Bilsot, what a beautiful shot! And also to Nat, well done.

Love the photos! Mine's of the Brooklyn Bridge.

Pat Tillett said...

WOW!!! What a group of great photos!!!
I'm not a judge, but it's rare to see a photo that immediately invokes a feeling in me. Sharon's photo did that to me just now!
Again, WOW! what a group!

Anonymous said...

Love all of them - my (rather blurry one - apologies, should've sorted out the resizing - I'll know for next time!) photo is of the Tromsobrua in Tromso, northern Norway in the Arctic Circle.

ps - if I had to pick one, I think Sharon's for the sheer awesomeness!

My bridge is one of the many that Rockefeller built for the carriage roads on Mt. Desert Island, which is now Acadia National Park, near Bar Harbor, Maine. It was built by European stone builders that Rockefeller hired to make his many bridges.

What a fabulous assortment of bridges, I love seeing everyone take on the theme.
