Some of the bridges in Venice, Italy are very low and must be impassable during a flood. You can see how boats with high loads have squeezed under them marking and taking off some of the masonry.
Maybe the people that built the bridges were really really short. Still very impressive structures and I love the composition and framing of this picture Michael.

@Marion: Thanks, Marion. I think they were built for low flat barges to go underneath.
Gorgeous colors on that bridge. It has the appearance of being too low, but I realize it's not. Beautiful image.

How jealous am I? It is 27 degrees F. here right now and tomorrow it isn't even going to get up to the freesing point. Burr. This is a beautiful photo. I love the bridge colors and the history about why they are scarred.

Une belle perspective qui se profile sous l'arche du pont, bravo pour les couleurs et la mise en valeur de la structure, j'aime beaucoup Venise.

@Alivia: Merci, Alivia.
Your perfectly managed to enhance the impression of this bridge being very low. A strong shot, again. Your whole Venice series is just amazing.

A wonderful photograph, and something that I'd never really considered until you quite rightly pointed it out. The scuffs marks tell the tale. A very neat perspective

mmm my heartbeat quickened...a touch of romance, in this cold world, I swept down to look at it, thank you Michael :)

Lovely lowness. I like the arc of the next bridge complementing the first one too.

@grouser: Thanks for looking so closely, Grouser.
oh how beautiful, my husband used to do these paintings, oh never mind, just reminded me of it... lovely picture!!

There's this geometrical beauty to the way you captured the bricks of the first arc! The boat is a nice touch too!
Evocative shot . . reminds me of the acoustics under there . . the brief moment of isolation the bridges offer.

@Ronnie 2¢: Yes. Always a pleasant experience. Thanks, Ronnie.
très beau cadrage ! j'aime beaucoup la perspective sous le pont ainsi que les couleurs de la pierre !

Everybody DUCK! :D
Now I feel that I've actually experienced the feeling, Michael ... a great shot!

@Judy: It looks very low from far away but as you approach you notice the boat actually fits. thanks for the fun comment, Judy.
Very nice framing! The colours and the light make me dream.... :)

Nice details, great captured and very good colorized shot. Beautiful!

Nice colours, and the composition draws the viewer into the image!

The view here looks a bit unsettling. I'm guessing you got through just fine. Great colors you've captured.

I really like this composition. A very nice shot.
