The Bridge on the River Kwai‘ (taken late in the afternoon). You may be familiar with this caption as also a title of a novel. The film of the same title is, according to the link, “deemed ‘culturally, historically or aesthetically’ siginifcant and selected for preservation in the United States Library of Congress National Film Registry.”
