Bridge and Blue Skies

 Burlington Canal Lift Bridge

It's the same bridge I posted on Friday but from the west side.

HI EG I love both these shots. wonderful clear blue skies yet snow on the ground and ice in the sea. Wonderful bridges

Ela said...

This must be the main bridge that was in use before the Skyway bridge was built. When it went up the traffic line up stretched for miles.

Sits perfectly against that big blue sky!

I am loving that sunlit lift bridge in the second photo... the icy water and the colors are magnificent

I am surprised that there isn't more ice in the water, with it being so cold?

Posted a virtual tour of our house on my blog post today.

And you were singing, "What a day this has been, what a rare mood I'm in...." Right?

Gorgeous. Still looks cold, though, with that ice floating on the water and the snow, of course!

The colours don't 'pop' as much as the other day but it's still impressive!

Rebecca said...

Your second photo reminds me of a photo I took in PHiladelphia. Nice perspective.

William Kendall said...

A lovely angle for both shots.

Hi! Nice captures. We would say that "The river divides people, and the bridge joins them together."
Wishing you a wonderful Sunday.

In spite of all that sun and blue sky, that water still looks so cold. Beautiful scene !

Blackberry Lane said...

Beautiful from every angle.

That is a gorgeous blue sky. I like all the interesting straight and curved lines in these photos, as well as the angles.

Thanks for bringing these bridge images to Sunlit Sunday. Can you imagine designing such a structure!

So much interest - snow, details of the bridge and that amazing blue sky. Oh, and the photo triggers: leading and curving lines. Yep, I think you got it.

TexWisGirl said...

very pretty against the blue.

Cindy said...

We get to look at the opposite side, amazing shot against the deep blue sky

Karen S. said...

Great captures! Such lovely sky. We have a couple of lift bridges, close to me, that are always a pleasure to see!

Cathy Keller said...

Oh, to see blue skies!!! Soon and very soon, I hope!!! Have a wonderful week!

Those blue skies add the perfect touch to most any picture.

Small City Scenes said...

Burlington is about 12 miles up the road---well a different town I do suppose. LOL

Love the bright blue sky. MB

Wonderful shots EG - perfect clarity!
The vivid blue sky could easy be shot on the clear summer days we are having in the Southern Hemisphere - if it wasn't for the ice, snow and bare trees in the background!

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Feels odd to see the snow and open water. A nice sunny day at least.

Pamela Gordon said...

Nice shots of these bridges. They are both interesting looking. I like the sheets of ice in the water.

I am always fascinated by bridges (I don't know why). I sometimes wonder whether I would have liked to have been a civil engineer.

Lorrie said...

Icy cold and beautiful shots. Bridges are graceful and strong structures.

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

I haven't been to Burlington in ages!

Rose said...

The lift bridges are fascinating...
