Bridge, Quechee Gorge

Photo by Michael

I focused on perspective in this photo, hopefully giving the sense of falling into the frame. This should be reinforced by the sense that the photographer’s perch is insecure or perhaps in midair. I was actually on a path running along the gorge underneath the bridge, kept quite secure by a tall chain link fence. You can see a bit of the chain link in the lower left corner, but the photo doesn’t work as well if you crop it vertically to remove that.

The bright sun made for an exposure challenge, but I’m glad the stark shadow of the bridge surface parallels the support girder on the left edge of the image. That softens the slight deviations from symmetry in the bridge structure.
