David, are you aware that my other half is a botanist/oceanographer? He answered your comment on my Shaving Brush Tree photo, and left you a footnote as well.

Even something so hard and industrial still has grace and beauty.

I love the picture but I wouldn't have wanted to be that close.

I guess the boats get quite a different view of bridges - as you have beautifully demonstrated here! Nice, erm, bottom!

I've never actually looked underneath a bridge before. I'm usually closing my eyes while crossing them.

Reminds me of crossing such bridges when I was a kid. Your perspective brings back how large such structures loomed. It was kind of magical.
