Pink shorts

This is the newest of the three footbridges over the Woods Creek ravine, which divides the Washington and Lee campus in two.

On a 40°F (4°C) day in December, the student's ensemble of choice will be: shorts and a down jacket.

Good composition; you have a nice eye for photography. This is so typical of today's college students' dress code. Well done!

Brrr, I can't believe they wear shorts at this time of year! Your photos are really lovely - I've never been to your part of the world but your pictures are exactly how I imagine it!

Thanks for your comment on Glasgow DP. Actually the view in today's picture is even better in real life :)

I really like this one. Nice lines and composition.

I suppose an ensemble like that is best enjoyed on a brief, fast walk.

Wonderful shot of a sunny winter day! I like footbridges very much.
4ºC and wearing shorts!?!?... completely out of the question around here! :-)))

She's probably warming up for a 20K run. I like the lines and shadows in your photo. I love these foot bridges. We have many and they are fun to find.

Like how you captured the arch of the pathway and the pink of her shorts.

Oh, we have those same ensembles at UA! It's forty, and they're wearing shorts and even flip flops!

Love all the texture within the stark tree branches.

as for the shorts - you should see the lasses in Newcastle-upon-Tyne!
