Railway Bridge over Labasa River - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT

Panorama taken from the middle of the disused railway bridge over Labasa River in Vanua Levu, Fiji. Taken a few days after the passing of a tropical cyclone, the skies are still heavy with cloud. Getting out on the bridge was fun, some of the sleepers were missing and there was nothing below except a drop into brown water.
