Rafting on river Adige


A few weeks ago, as I was walking by the river, I spotted two rafts. I could hear the excited voices of the young teams rowing towards the Ponte della Vittoria (Victory Bridge), heading to the little rapid (you can see the small ripples under the arch). They seemed to be having a really good time!
On the other side of the bridge you can see Borgo Trento, a modern district ('900s-'970s) of about 12.000 inhabitants.

Lovely photo, lovely bridge! (I am just fascinated by bridge's).
There is a lot happening in this photograph - the marvellous bridge design, the Rafters,the horse monuments,the modern buildings with their colorful canopy's and blinds, the orange Bus crossing over, the aerials & satellite dishes... I will probably find even more next time I look!

Hi Valeria -- just catching up again on your great shots of your beautiful city. Do you mean the years 900-970? And that is 'modern'? Wow. Oregon wasn't even a state until 1859!

Very nicely captured. I like all the things about that have already been said, but I also like the look of the light in this picture. But then, you almost always seem to capture that!
