This is a photo of the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge, designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, which sits across the Avon Gorge.The bridge spans 214 meters and is supported by two 26 meter high towers. At high tide, the bridge sits at 76 meters above the water. The bridge opened in 1864 and links Clifton to Leigh woods in North Somerset.
This is a shot looking towards Millennium Square from Pero’s Bridge in Bristol City Centre. The big wheel is only there for a short time and I was able to frame it between the two horns of the bridge. This was taken at pedestrian rush hour but the long exposure has rendered almost all of the people invisible.
I decided to go for a drive to Severn Beach to get some photos of the Severn Crossing. It was not quite the sunset of the previous days but I didn’t let that put me off. I did have black and white in mind but thought the colour version was good. It kind of feels monochromatic and I particularly like the texture in the foreground against the smooth sweeping line of the bridge.
I was walking through a street fair in Bristol’s North Street when I came across this temporary bar made from an old pallet. I liked the way in which the bar tender was dressed and the expression of the lady at the bar. I was able to use the edge of a gazebo and a stack of amps to frame the shot. Any comments are welcome!
