A Cookham bridge

Not the main one over the Thames, but constructed along the bank of the flood defences nearby, I like its simple elegance.

It is indeed a lovely bridge John, so English in its design and surroundings.
This is a lovely bridge and a very tranquil scene, Lovely smile
The bridge is well constructed as is your photograph. It conveys mood - tranquility, as Linda said - and it has a wonderful perception of depth to to it. Very nicely composed.
Beautiful setting and composition.
Nice composition with plenty of depth to it..Well done John.

A fine bridge with its brick construction. I especially like the foreground with the spike-like greenery. Nice shot.

Ooooooooh, the grass is indeed a bit greener in England. Now I am jealous. I want such a bridge over here too... I have spotted a similar one - I hope to be able to present it to you soon. As for your image John, I wish I could sit between those leaves of grass, take a deep breath and enjoy the (as others have already astutely pointed out)tranquility of the moment/scene. Simple is the best kind of beautiful, isn't it?

I absolutely love bridges like this. Beautifully composed image. Those clouds look like ripples in water and the grasses in the forefront give it a lush feeling.
Very traditional and nicely composed. A fine bridge.
