Mystic River Bridge

Mystic, CT

I've featured this historic bridge in previous posts on this blog.  Over the past two years, the bridge has undergone a complete renovation/restoration.  During the summer months, it opens every hour  at 40 minutes past the hour to let the boat traffic go up and down the Mystic River.  This of course causes quite a back up of traffic along US 1 in Mystic.  There was just enough rippling of the water this particular morning to prevent a perfect reflection of the bridge, but I still think it is worthy of being shared on Weekend Reflections hosted by James.  There you'll see some very nearly perfect reflections. Enjoy your weekend, and as always, thanks for visiting.

  1. I like the dimpled reflections just fine as is, and the sky is really nice in the shot.

  2. That is such a mysterious structure... It feel a bit Steampunk / 1900's : I feel like I'm in a Jules Vernes set.
