Glen Lyon Bridge
Nathan Dukes, 2018
Glen Lyon is the longest highland valley in Scotland. The River Lyon snakes its way through the glen past lush forest and isolated Perthshire farm lands, and deep in the glen lies an arched ‘Roman’ bridge.
The name is a misnomer - it’s likely only 3 or 4 centuries old, but that doesn’t take away from it’s sublime beauty.
A small tributary tumbles from a waterfall before flowing under the bridge and into the river. The bridge marks a track those with a day to spare can follow allow the river’s edge for several miles.
This photo was taken from across the river, through a natural window in the forest. The calm conditions allowed me to slow the shutter speed and stretch the waterfall without losing sharpness in the trees.
