The lithograph depicts a complex landscape perspective of a bridge over a body of water. Each layer of paint forms a different feature of the landscape: the foreground consists of autumn yellow and brown trees, which leads upwards to the underbelly of the bridge. The bridge which rests on pylons and reaches over a silver thread of water. In the distance the pale pink outline of hills can be seen. McIntyre has used a patchwork of different printing styles to describe the landscape including swirling, circular clouds and the dense lines of tree trunks and branches.

This piece is on of a series (No. 25) of a hundred prints, measuring 42 x 42 cm (daylight size) and 47.5 x 47.5 cm (overall size). It was purchased with funds from the Calouse Gulbenkian Foundation/Highland Printmakers Inverness.
