Bridge over Krishna River, Bijapur

These are the shots of the road bridge over Krishna River 50kms south of Bijapur, Karnataka. We halted somewhere in the middle of the bridge to take shots of the river flowing by. Other than the views over the river, the bridge itself provided some interesting compositions.

A very long bridge, bending over on both sides, it seemed to me as if the bridge was disappearing and merging into the horizon. With not much of traffic on the bridge, I walked this side to that side taking shots, I took some quick vertical shots to get the effect of ‘the bridge dissolving into the horizon’.

And then on an impulse I said, โ€œWarn me if something speeds up from behind,โ€ before I stood there in the middle of the road to take this shot. What do you think? Is that a fire engine?

    This reminds me of the dam across Tungabhadra.

    And the red dot is most certainly the "Town Bus" which hasn't had a change in colour scheme for a-g-e-s in these parts! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Haha.. a woman after my own heart… I do that kind of thing all the time, Indrani! But it has its rewards… funky bridge shots you got here! I must also add that at first I was amazed there was no traffic… like in China, I expect people everywhere all the time… but really, in the countryside it can be so peaceful.

    a mail truck? like postman pat?

    How come there is no other vehicles? Were you filming a Bollywood movie, so the govt closed the bridge? LOL
