October photo contest

I've chosen Bridges as this month's theme.

The rules are simple:
-You must be the photographer
-One entry per month
-Try making it an image from the last year.

Good luck!

Slauerhoffbrug - Leeuwarden / The Netherlands
The Slauerhoffbrug (English: Slauerhoff Bridge) is a fully automatic bascule bridge (aka tail bridge) in the city of Leeuwarden in the Netherlands. It uses two arms to swing a section of road in and out of place within the road itself. This movable bridge is also known as the “Slauerhoffbrug ‘Flying’ Drawbridge”. The deck is 15 m by 15 m.
Slauerhoffbrug is perhaps named after J.J. Slauerhoff, the famous Leeuwarder, Dutch poet.

Finally something I can participate and I can't find my pics of the Big Dam Bridge... oh well, here's another bridge over the Arkansas River, with a bonus chu chu train:



PS: Train noise was actually "waka waka waka waka, chuuuu chuuuuu, waka waka waka waka"... and it was last year.

@Reynolds ...

Did we have a winner for October? If so, that winner wins the opportunity to start December's Photo Contest thread.
