Val di Lei Bridges, Old and New

A sun-drenched autumn afternoon in my beloved Canton Graubünden,
photo-exploring with my F-C friends Beatrice and Ruedi in October 2011.

The toned black and white treatment makes its first appearance here.

    A competely new sight for me, and, as always, concrete as the Swiss´ most beloved material plays an important role here! But, as always, depends what is made of it, and the Swiss know how to deal with concrete in the most perfect way. Proved by the photo.
    Rugged scenery, and old and new remind me of the similar, yet much better known place along the Gotthard road, the "Devil´s bridge"!
    Best regards, schöne Gruesse

      Thank you, Tom, for your always informative comments! You've given me another reason to - finally! - return to Switzerland. I've had a longstanding desire to ride the shuttle train that runs from Göschenen (along the Gotthard Route) to Andermatt, through some very craggy landscape, and certainly to experience and photograph that Teufelsbrücke - Perhaps in a coming autumn! Meantime, glad you liked your introduction to the Val di Lei bridges.
      Best regards,
