St Jacobs - Troll Bridge

OK enough colour, back to black and white. :-)
On our way back from St. Jacobs we wandered along the back roads and I spotted this old wooden bridge.
This shows the Nikon D300's monochrome engine in all its glory.
Pretty well straight out of the camera.
Monochrome setting with a "Red" filter applied.
I love this camera for it's ability to do this.
I tried a crop without the dark tree line across the top. I liked it this way better.
I saw this today and had to share it ...
I remember a hundred lovely lakes, and recall the fragrant breath of pine and fir and cedar and poplar trees. The trail has strung upon it, as upon a thread of silk, opalescent dawns and saffron sunsets. It has given me blessed release from care and worry and the troubled thinking of our modern day. It has been a return to the primitive and the peaceful. Whenever the pressure of our complex city life thins my blood and benumbs my brain, I seek relief in the trail; and when I hear the coyote wailing to the yellow dawn, my cares fall from me - I am happy. ~Hamlin Garland, McClure's, February 1899http://www.quotegarden.com/nature.html
