[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here is the ponte nuevo in Ronda.

This bridge has been built to combine the too part of the city, separated by a large canyon. it's 120 meter high.

there is a small path to go down , I take this picture from here.

For the small story the architect of the bridge died just after his construction, while he wanted to see his work from a nacelle, his hat blow off, and he felt down while trying to catch it up...

and as Krl remind me, an other tragic story: condemned Francoism opponent were thrown from this bridge.

Salut Olivier,
Il y a également une autre histoire tragique avec ce pont...
C'est génial, on se rend bien compte de la dimension de l'oeuvre. J'ai pas eu le courage de descendre ;o)
Bonne journée

Olivier this image has so many beautiful well captured elements - the bridge itself, the white building clearly captured through the bridge arch and of course the waterfall. congratulations!


Bonsoir Olivier
Très impressionnante image que ce pont. Bel angle de prise de vue pour inclure l'oeuvre en entier, jolie lumière et ce filet d'eau qui pendant des siècles a creusé le canyon. Très belle composition.
Merci de nous faire connaître ce coin d'Espagne.
