Day 4 of Bridging the Gap

I had to crop this out of a much larger shot and it's still hard to see the little stone bridge which is on the trail around the pond at the Moses H. Cone Memorial Park in Blowing Rock, NC.The second shot which is a crop from another picture shows the bridge somewhat better. You can click inside to enlarge but neither really does justice to the little bridge. I was shooting large landscapes and had to do a major crop to show the bridge at all. You can see the horses better in the first shot if you enlarge it.The last shot was taken at Cannon Gardens in Blowing Rock, NC. I have a different issue with this shot. I took a closeup to get the detailed rocks and I'm honestly not sure if this is technically a bridge at all. Next time I'm in Blowing Rock I'll have to refresh my memory. My mother was from near there and I still have a lot of family in that area.

This fun challenge is being hosted by Alice at I was born2cree8 and other participants can be found there.

Love the stone bridge. This looks like a great place to walk/run/ride a horse for sure!

I have one in my line-up for later in the week that I'm not sure if it's a bridge or not either... But it will get used if I don't come up with something better! LOL! I love that little stone bridge. It is too bad you didn't photograph it on it's own. These are lovely shots though!

Beautiful landscapes! The fall setting has me longing for the season to hurry and get here.
Enlarging and then zooming in made the bridge easier to see.
The stone bridge in the last photo is awesome - very serene.

Lovely post.

I enlarged them. They are great, though yes it would be nice to have closer shots. I'm sure if you get back there you will be taking some of just the bridge now, lol.

I sOOO much miss my horse!! {whine, sniffle}

Beautiful series of shots, Carver. The old stone bridge is my fave. Do you have Fall colors already? Having just returned from Summer vacation, I can't seem to wrap my brain around the idea of Fall...

Love the bridge and that entire scene looks so peaceful. I am awestruck by the coloring of the trees. I love Fall colors so that may be why. The last photo is really interesting. At least I am not the only who gets close-ups and then has to wonder what the larger picture was about :)

Thanks so much to everyone for visiting. I should mention that I shot these photographs during a prior fall. I can't wait for it to arrive here but it won't really get started until October where I live.
