Kelefos Bridge is probably the most well-known of all the Venetian Bridges in Cyprus, for good reasons. It even features on the UK TV holiday adverts for Cyprus, showing a couple cycling over it on an afternoon ride. In reality, you won't find any cyclists here, but you will find a bridge full of charm, and surrounding countryside to match...
I've visited Kelefos Bridge on numerous occasions and know that it can get quite popular. So I set off early for my photoshoot. I approached from Vretsia, through Paphos Forest, and arrived at about 8:30AM. However, it seems that the local forest rangers and fire service also like to have an early morning meeting. Luckily they were only there to have a chat amongst themselves rather than clamber all over the bridge, so I was able to take my photos in peace. They did give me hearty responses to my Kalimera though.

Plenty of Water
Last summer this river dried out, which makes for much less attractive photography. Luckily there was a good flow today though.
And here is the bridge itself.
With all those cobbles it must have been a bit uncomfortable to cycle over in that advert.
