Photohunt: Beautiful and Day 7 of Bridging the Gap

I am combining my photohunt post with the last day of Bridging the Gap. Alice mentioned that she may turn this into a weekly challenge for anyone who is interested so be sure to check out her site if you are interested. The photohunt theme this week is beautiful. I thought I would feature a walk which included a bridge on one beautiful day from each of the four seasons.
The shot above was taken in November of 2007 at Shelley Lake which is close to where I live. You can see the long bridge better if you click inside the picture but the bridge itself isn't particularly unique. None of these bridges for my last day of the challenge are particularly special but they are pleasant to walk across on beautiful days throughout the year. I've even slid on parts of them when they were icy although I'm not quite that adventurous any more.
The second photograph was shot in February 2008 and was taken at Lake Lynn which is also close to where I live. I don't go there that often because Shelley Lake has a 53 acre park and many side trails so I tend to go to the lake one mile from me as opposed to the one that is two miles from me. Lake Lynn has a long bridge which you can see above in the winter shot. It's a much smaller park than the one at Shelley Lake but it has a longer bridge. The shot above shows two bridges on a beautiful May day in 2008 when all the trees have leafed out. I was walking on one of the many side trail which extend out from Shelley Lake.
I end where I started, back at Shelley lake looking at the bridge, but this time it's a beautiful morning a few weeks ago in August of 2008. I have enjoyed this bridge challenge so much and thanks to Alice at Born2cree8 for coming up with it.
