Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Water

This time, Cee’s asking for three or four photos illustrating “water”.

So, here’s a set featuring various colors –

  1. The maple leaves are stunning. Such intense colour. We don’t have covered bridges in the UK so that photo immediately makes me think of Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep.

    • The maples were really fiery this year! Of course, you never know from one fall to the next whether the leaves will be brilliantly colored or just fade into drab shades of tan.

      I was going to say I have no idea why covered bridges were built, but Wikipedia to the rescue – they claim the design is meant to protect wooden bridges from the weather so they’ll last longer. That makes sense – the areas I think of as covered bridge territory are all in the eastern U.S., which (a) was heavily settled before metal bridge trusses became standard and (b) left to itself, would be thickly forested from the Atlantic to the Mississippi, so wooden bridges would have been a good use for all that timber. (Nobody builds new covered bridges except in a deliberate attempt to be scenic.)

  2. I was hoping someone would put snow in for water. Great photos for this week’s topic. Thanks for playing along.

  3. Oh stunning, especially the leaf!

  4. Just beautiful, the covered bridge is poetic!

  5. I love that you linked it with colours. Very creative.

    • Aw, thanks! It began accidentally, but once I realized I could make an “RGB” theme for the post, that did influence which pictures made the final cut. (I have a lot of water photos.)

  6. Great shots! Love that you also linked colour into your selection!
