Light it up

This bridge over the Nieuwe Herengracht along the Amstel river is specially lightend up for the tourists in these dark days. ( Also at summertime when the tourist peak is at its highest .) But there are days when all is back to normal and you don't have the lights.
One for sunday bridges here.

  3. Another fine lighting example. I love when the city's normal, essential structures are lit like this one.

  6. This bridge is spectacular with the night lighting. :-)
    «Louis» thanks you for linking it to his Sunday Bridges meme!

    Your memory is very good! The green bridge you remember is very similar to today's bridge - and they are both on (or, in the case of this one) adjacent to U.S. Highway 101. The bridge you are remembering is just south of Hopland, 145 miles/233 km south of Rio Dell where this bridge is located. Both are green and are of very similar construction. :-)

  7. Such a beautifully lit bridge. It has great lines and the lights just sets them off.

  9. I think I remember this scene, even though we've been to Amsterdam only two or three times.The draw bridge is unusual.
