Richmond Bridge, Tasmania

The sandstone arches of the Richmond Bridge, set against the hills of the Coal River Valley, have straddled Tasmania's Coal River since their completion in 1825. Built by convict labour in its picturesque setting and framing views of one of Richmond township's historic churches, the Richmond Bridge has long inspired artists, tourists and lovers of beautiful places almost since it was completed.

The bridge itself has outstanding heritage value to the nation because of its rarity as the earliest Australian large stone arch bridge and because it has survived with few significant changes since it was first constructed.

It is widely recognised across the nation featuring in numerous publications, tourist and historic literature and in the work of major Australian artists. Images of Richmond Bridge have also appeared on postage stamps.

The fame of the bridge has magnified the status of Richmond far beyond its size and population. The bridge and its surrounds draw almost two hundred thousand visitors annually to Richmond to experience the idyllic setting with its connections to the beauty of a past era.

hey Alaettin,
superb focus and image sharpness. Excellent details.
I like the ripples in the water (looks like a gentle breeze from the other direction).

Great POV and composition.
Well done.
Best regards, Daniel

Merhaba Alaettin bey!
Işık için uygun bir zamanmış, sağ üst köşedeki ağacın kadraj içerisindeki yeri ve gökyüzüne ayrılan kısım denge oluşturmuş bence.
Köprünün altın yansımaları da çok hoş görünüyor.
Bakış açınız hoşuma gitti, klasik bir kompozisyon köprüyü baştan sona görüntülemek ile olurdu diye düşünüyorum.
Ellerinize sağlık, paylaştığınız için teşekkürler.
Sevgi ve saygılar.

Hi Alaettin!
This is a very good diagonal composition of this old bridg. Focus is so sharp that every stone is distinct. Sky is also remarkable.
Anton

Bonsoir.
Un très beau pont en pierres...
C'est toujours assez joli ces ponts...
Bravo pour cette lumière également et ce bon cadrage !

Wonderful bridge Alaettin! is not surpresive the large crits here!. I like the textures of stones and very crispy and light. Beautiful really!

Excellent photo of this Tasmanian icon Alaettin. It is a delightful town and very picturesque. I actually prefer the Ross bridge. Good colour, lovely POV and super detail. TFS,
David
