Sunday bridges on Monday.....!


Even though we are officially an hour into Monday here in Perth it's still Sunday in the Northern Hemisphere thus hopefully making this shot viable for Sunday bridges :) There have been bridges crossing the Swan River at this point in Guildford since 1855. Barkers Bridge, the current structure made mainly from whole Jarrah trunks crosses from Guildford to Caversham over a wide stretch of floodplain on the Caversham side.. you can see some of the piles on the floodplain have been replaced by steel posts, still an impressive and sturdy structure, those Jarrah piles will be around longer than moi I bet! Hope you had an excellent weekend and are ready to face the week ahead.. I can tell you with Aimee moving in a few days it's going to be a strange one for me! Take care....

  7. Nice bridge.

    I should have done more bridges while on my road trip or at least posted the cruddy ones I have the the Rockville Bridge on Sunday!

    I like doing bridges when I have the time to float below them on one of my inflatables and take photos from under them. Railroad draw and lift bridges are especially interesting from underneath.

  8. Nice bridge, especially the top photo. The water looks red. Maybe it is subliminal, thinking of Aimee.

  12. Aha! So there's another reason for loving Jarrah other than because it's RED?!?!?!?!
