A Bridge to Freedom

Remember the Cold War?  Well, if you are at all interested in that part of history, then you may have heard of Glienecke Bridge (Glienecker Brücke in German), one of the few places in the world where Blue and Red stood toe-to-toe.  This bridge to freedom, which spans the Havel river between Berlin (on the far side of this photo) and Potsdam (where I stood to take this shot) was also known as the “Bridge of Spies”, a place the U.S. and Russian would sometimes meet up to swap spies.

Whoa, cool! The ‘Freq does landscapes! And very well I might add. I’m loving the detail in the stonework on the left, along with everything else in here.

As usual, Jacques, you present a fantastic image. I am agreeing with Rob on the detail all the way through the shot. Impressive!
