the blue sign reads 'bicycle path', the white one reads 'walking over the arc is prohibited'.

Nice capture, I really like the dark grey clouds with the bright spot hovering near the top of the arc. Nice having the signs there as well, although I would have liked to see a tiny bit more of the arc.

Thanks for all the comments! AFAIK the sign is as old as the bridge. Melanie, I did not see people try to walk over this one, but it would not suprise me if some brave/stupid individual had a go at it. Sorry Victor, it is indeed a logo, as a habit I put it in. No Sharon, you can't bike over it ;) Initially that sign was in the same direction as the other ones but as everywhere the start of a new university year changes a lot in this city ;) tv, 'verboden' in english would be 'forbidden' (sounds kind of similar). Over is over. It says 'forbidden (verboden) to walk (lopen) over the arc (boog). Rob

Good angle. Good arc. What means "verboden" in english? How about "over"? -tv

But it's okay to bike over the arc?!!! Great perspective here. A fun shot! ~Sharon

OK. But what is that circle shape at lower, left. If it's a watermark, I suggest it's in a really poorly chosen location. I find it to be quite distracting there. -- Victor

Everything here is right. Strong composition.

Very nice! Striking shapes, color and sky. I wonder if they had a problem with people walking over the arch before they put up the sign? :) --Melanie

Darn! And I wanted to walk over the arc. *grin* This is wonderful, Rob. I like the colors with the sky. Wonderful. ~Lydia
