Here's a rather whimsical and, IMO, artful bridge, over a desert wash within the city of Phoenix. It's called the Grasshopper Bridge, and I had great fun shooting it.

I would never have envisaged that getting damaged. Floods must have been pretty serious.
A well constructed bridge.
You're bringing back many memories Lyle
When I asked about it, I was told that some trees had come down and been swept downstream, and the damage was caused by the trees getting tangled with the bridge. I'm wondering if the tree debris in the water are remnants of the incident.

"New" footbridge over the River Teifi in Cardigan, with old stone arch bridge beyond.

These with adapted Nikon 300mm which made for tight framing. Last one is a pano I made in Lr from some of the frames.

This was a Victorian railway viaduct, whose line was closed in the mid-1960s (like many in the UK). It has been retained as a nature reserve. Amazing how quickly the planet reclaims human-built stuff (last picture is taken up on top). Some quite big trees up there now.

I take it it's not part of the National Cycle Network then, unlike several of the old railway routes?
No - I struggled to get my bike up there, and then wished I hadn't. Getting back down with a bike was very tricky.

The Bristol to Bath cycle path (another repurposed old railway line) passes close by - I'm guessing the two old lines were once joined

I've cycled the Bristol to Bath route a few times and have also done the Two Tunnels Route from Bath to Radstock.
Some lovely countryside out there and next time I hope to make it to Frome on the TT route.
Here's a pic from the TT route with road bridge crossing the old track and then a bit further on, the entrance to one of the tunnels, with another bridge over the entrance.
