Bridge to _____?

I didnt really want to call it Skodje Brua, and it feels like something out of a fairytale, but couldnt think of a special one that it fit, so i thought I would leave it up to your imagination and decide which fairytale or bridge it reminds you of.
For those that follow my profile I already posted a photo from here, but it is the other bridge as this one is part of two right after one another.
The great grandfather of one of my friends was one of the ones that helped build this bridge and as a kid this was the regular bridge we used to get to the city. SCARY, expecially in the winter, you dont have a good view if there is another car coming on the other bridge as you go on. and there is pretty much place for one car as a time. and parts of it are on a slope, combined with ice can be scary. But now there is a large bridge just a hundred or two meters from this one that you can zoom by.
While walking down the path down to here I noticed a 5 point leaf with great red colors, and so I took it along to put specifically in my composition in the name of Autumn.
I did a bit more editing than im used to. but as a disclaimer most of the magical feeling is by making a HDR and darkening the whole as well as specific areas. and that was enough for most.
I should have taken one more exposure for the sunlight but realised I didnt, so I had to paint out a bit of the white in the sky.
added a bit of warmth to the sunset as well as selective vignetting.
as well as about 15 images were used to make this. combined with HDR, long exposures, and Focus stacking to get the desired effect. especially when working with such small details.
I dont know why, I love autumn and all the colors, But I dont feel as inspired to do nature photography and Feel more like "Oh I guess I should take some photos of the season." I like my results a lot there is something about it. cant quite wrap my brain around it.
I hope yall enjoy it =D
