Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Bridges

The Bear Mountain Bridge is a toll suspension bridge in New York State,  crossing the Hudson River. From the time of its completion in 1924, it held the record for the longest suspension bridge in the world for 19 months, until it was surpassed by the Benjamin Franklin Bridge in Philadelphia. We crossed it this weekend, and as we approached I was taken in by the beauty of the mountains standing behind it. DSCN6666

This is the view as we headed home traveling West, the clouds in the sky looking a bit ominous.bearmtnbridge1

bearmtnbr4The photos below were taken the next day when we headed North not having to cross the bridge. I looked out my passenger window and nearly fainted from the beautiful sight before me. I had no time but to grab my cell phone and shoot through the closed window, ending up with a reflection and not a totally clear photo. I still felt it was worth sharing as it is a magnificent view.20160704_100034

  1. Nice pictures of a bridge I’ve been across, over, (small plane,) under and climbing on over the years. One particular memory was the fireworks celebrating one of the bridge’s anniversaries, which we watched from our then boat in the river. The echoes of the concusions off the mountains was awesome.

  2. it’s impressing, but I’m not sure if I would feel comfy to cross this bridge… I still have problems to enter the viaduct of st. brieuc what’s a lot smaller than this bridge :o) I always try to look straight ahead when I’m there … it#s sadly not possible to close my eyes while driving LOL
