Sunday Bridges ~ 11-21-10 ~ Allegheny County, VA

I usually post one and at the most two photos for Sunday Bridges, but this week I did not think I could not do the old Humpback Bridge justice without doing this series. There is the old bridge with the railroad bridge beside it. I hope the shots do not take too long to load, because it is such a beautiful and special spot. Over the years it has been washed away by flooding three times, but each time rebuilt. It’s a favorite spot for sweethearts, beer drinkers, teenagers wanting to leave their names in wood, picnickers, and just folk like ourselves who just want a beautiful spot to visit and photograph.
                                                             ENJOY!

  8. The 2nd photo, accentuating the curve of the bridge is extraordinary! Thank you for a wonderful tour of the two bridges...really makes me feel like I visited in person.
    (PS - so fun to hear of your Oxford jaunts...after seeing new places, the best part of visiting blogs is how they bring back memories.)
