Photo Hunt: Bridge



Driving to and from Canberra during the School Holidays we passed over the River Murray many times. This is one of the bridges we crossed at Tooleybuc on the boundary between Victoria and New South Wales.  Tooleybuc is a pretty little town with an excellent kids playground as my kids will attest. Here the river is muddy and not very impressive, with a width of less than ten metres.



Very different to the dammed portion of the river near Swan Reach.

Bridges are in short supply in my archive. I had better get busy. Once when I had all my slides I had dozens.

Nice take Colin. I am sure that the Murray at Tooleybuc is far more impressive than the Rom at Roneo Corner! Have a great weekend

It does look nice. Must be a relaxing place to visit :)

One of those weird factual snippets that remain in my head after decades out of school: learning in geography about Australia's Murray-Darling River(s)! ;b

A very necessary and functional bridge, despite the "insignificance" of the river just there. "Population 250" - wonderful!

The landscape looks very nice ! I don't have a lot of bridges around here in Waterloo where I live.

Tooleybuc, such an Australian name. I can't believe I'll be there in a couple of weeks. Well not at Tooleybuc exactly.

That looks like a pleasant road to drive on and good bridge choice.

I love the wide river photo. There is something majestic about a lazy wide river.

You can find mine here:

Seeing the second picture send images of people rafting on it to my braincells :)
Have a good week ahead!

Dianne said...

I think seeing the sign really adds to your shot!

Really like the photos! Missed checking out your page. Happy hunting!

That is a fine looking bridge and I love the name Tooleybuc! Great choice for the theme!

My God man, it's like you're taking photos of my childhood. In fact, I grew up in Balranald, about half an hour from Tooleybuc. Very familiar with Swan Hill as well...

GREAT photos. The scenery in your neck of the woods is just stunning. Australia is so flat!

Thanks for visiting my Photo Hunt last week. I am finally catching up!
