About This Image

The Mohaka Bridge is 96m above river level with a span of 278m. You can see the walking platform we walked on just under the bridge. The river isn't visible from this photo. There have been a number of accidents on this bridge and the most famous is of a house-bus that went over the edge killing all 8 occupants. Its scary every time you have to drive over it.

I love a good bridge image. This is well captured.

I can see how this bridge could seem a bit daunting. It's a beautiful capture that gives great indication to the fact that the water is quite a distance below. Vicki

Thanks Mel for your comment. This is not one of my most popular bridges to travel over. I have seen it in a whole new light now though and its not quite as scary as I had always thought.

Thanks for sharing this great shot Lulu. I have been over this bridge so many times and have only stopped at it once - but never went as far as you and also not with a camera. This shot is perfect, such great depth of field and shows the length of it in great detail!

Thanks Mary, Alandra and Talsi for your lovely comments. If you are ever over this side of the world, this is surely one sight you will have to see. The motorists thought I was strange standing there with my camera though as its not usually a place that people stop and sight-see.

This gives a very good idea of the height etc. esp as you can't even see the water below. thanks for sharing these interesting photos of your New Zealand.

Very nice shot LuLu. I like the angle. It looks scary to me, especially having to cross it knowing of the accidents that occurred.
