The Caney Fork River Bridge on Big Bottom Road in rural White County Tennessee. This bridge is still in use. I saw a flatbed truck and trailer drive across it just before I took this photo. I also drove across it after I took this photo.

Before I read the description I was instantly reminded of old bridges in the KY/WV/TN region. My family often went camping in the area, mostly in WV and KY, where both my grandparents grew up and still had relatives. It's easy to imagine an old car or truck creeping across the bridge, and reminds me of old photos my grandfather had tucked away.

I like how the trees frame the bridge and the lighting. It's not overly-dramatic and lets your eyes keep moving, and also makes a softer setting for the hard edges of the supports. :w00t:

Thanks! :D At one time there were several bridges like this in my area, but most have been torn down. This is one of the only functional bridges of this type left. :(

I'm sorry to hear they're falling by the wayside. There used to be hundreds of them, usually on the smaller back roads that wound through the mountains. Is it still blue (as most of them were) or has rust gotten the better of it?
