Hiking : Suspension Bridge From Above

Posted by
Rick (Toronto, Canada) on 14 December 2017 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

As close to a sheer dangerous drop as I dared to get for a photo. I liked how the forest trees seemed to swallow the bridge.

Oh my goodness!! I really like that opening as well, in the forest, like a train tunnel ;-) What really intrigues me is the visual sensation here that seems to separate the image into three distinct phases yet it all blends in together,...The smaller step falls on the right facing the bridge and meeting the water from this gigantic drop here...and all of it encircling itself...Outrageously awesome!!! I absolutely Love this, Rick! Beautifully done sir ;-)

Dramatically framed and what an inviting hole in the trees on the other side

@grouser: Thanks. I wanted to get on that bridge but have to wait until the Spring. The entrance from below is lovely, framed by a tunnel of trees.

I'm not sure I'd want to chance that bridge . .

@Ronnie 2¢: I'll report on how it feels after next Spring when I give it a go.

Devi from Chennai, India

Gosh !! This is superb !! Wonder whe5re the bridge leads to !!

@Devi: Thanks, Devi! On the forest side shown here, it leads to a wonderful rugged hiking trail on a steep slope full of trees. On the higher side, from where I took this photo, it leads to a manmade viewing area that also leads back into the forest. I will explore it more in the Spring and post the results.

Wow!! Quite a dizzying PoV captured here!! It is much higher than I first thought. Great capture!

@Steven: One side of the bridge is at a higher elevation than the other, and I look forward to seeing more of this place. In fact, we plan to hike it again this coming weekend even though we can't access the bridge until Spring. Thanks a lot, Steven.

Anna Cherer from LA ROCHELLE, France

It's very impressive ! I like your angle of view and you found the exact word to describe this bridge swallowed by the forest ! Incredible tunnel ! You should absolutely pass on this footbridge in the next spring ;-)

@Anna Cherer: Thanks very much ! We loved this place so much we are going back this weekend, now with lots of pretty snow on the ground, to explore more of it. Also I will bring my Nikon and have more creative control over the next batch of photos, as much as I love my little Canon.

That is a great perspective on the bridge and waterfall. You seem suspended right over the water.
