Salginatobel Bridge from below

On the way to my hometown Schuders in the Swiss Alps you cross a bridge that is famous among civil engineers due to its uniquely elegant design. The Salginatobel Bridge is a reinforced concrete arch bridge designed by Swiss civil engineer Robert Maillart. It was constructed across the Salgina valley between 1929 and 1930. In 1991, it was declared an International Historic Civil Engineering Landmark. I hiked up along the wild Salgina creek to get at this vantage point.


I processed a paintery, a balanced, and a photographic HDR photo from three RAW exposures, and carefully adjusted the color balance and curves. I welcome and appreciate constructive comments.
