Oh My 06880 — Photo Challenge #83

Most photo challenges are snippets of photos. They’re cropped closely. This is a photo challenge, after all — not a slam dunk or easy softball pitch.

Last week’s was an actual photo (thanks, Patricia McMahon!). I ran it because it was beautiful. But I also thought it was challenging enough to test most readers.

Nope. A record 17 of you knew — almost immediately — that the clouds hovered over trees, grass and a stone fence that can be found at the curve on North Compo Road, near Evergreen Avenue. It’s the entrance to Winslow Park. (Which, as many readers noted, was once the site of the Westport Sanitarium.)

Congratulations to Adam Stolpen, Michael Moore, Peggy O’Halloran, Diane Bosch, Rich Stein, Dorian Barth, Shirlee Gordon, Robin Welling, Molly Alger, Dan Herman, Sally Korsh, Jennifer Piseck, Vanessa Bradford, Elayne Landau, Mary (Cookman) Schmerker, Lynne Betts Baker and Carissa Baker. (Click here to see the fantastic image; scroll down for comments.)

    Is this photo taken from the Saugatuck River as you go out to the bay?  I think it’s of the first of the three bridges? 

  7. Tom Feeley JR

    That’s the underside of the cribari bridge. I took a video of it last week opening. I’ll post the YouTube later. BTW: it was not hand cranked, but now uses an electric motor.

    This looks like a view from the pedestrian bridge that runs alongside the railroad tracks over the Saugatuck.

  11. Mary Ruggiero

    I think it’s the Cibari Bridgeworks.

  12. Yes — it’s the underside of the Cribari/Bridge Street bridge over the Saugatuck River. Looks good for another 130 years, no?

    just the other day kayaking under this bridge I almost took a shot just like this to submit to you. Great minds think alike!
