A view across Bowling Harbour and the R. Clyde towards the Erskine Bridge as the last light of the day fades away.
Taken last week, I had gone for a sunset.......came home with no sunset shots but many a midge bite.

(You may recall from the news that two young girls in care managed to get to this bridge one night a threw themselves over the barrier to their deaths: now very high new barriers are being installed along the length of the bridge. It was such a very sad ending for these two young and apparently troubled lives).

My thanks to all who left a comment on Long and Winding Way.

Ronnie.

Great use of trees to frame the shot Ronnie, the weather is not to kind at the moment.

At least you captured a hint of the colours Ronnie, and as Trev says you have this beautifully framed with the trees
and two little lights top of the bridge stand out
there will be another day to get...if we ever see summerSad
lovely image though

Fine spot to take this Ronnie using the trees to frame the capture can just see the aircraft warning lights giving out a wee glow a good silhouette of your route from the dark side TongueWink...was in bowling last week when we had the good weather was like a zoo so many people. Indeed a sad ending for the girls their minds must have been in turmoil cannot imagine their despair at all...

Back to dreich weather again

Yes,I remember the tragic events of these two girls Ronnie.
Tragic times we live in I am afraid.
When I worked in the railway it surprised me to find out how many suicides there were with people throwing themselves in front of the trains.
And surprising off all was how many of these went unreported in the news !!

ooooh yes this would be a nasty place for midges Ronnie. A tragic story of the two girls, barriers up too late for them sadly. There are so many sad tales of lives ruined and youngsters unable to handle the trials of life. A quiet sunset maybe is a fitting tribute my friend.

I like your composition and the light is wonderful despite the fact the sunset didn't materialise. So sad about the girls; I remember when the news came through. Your title is very fitting Ronnie for the two girls.

i believe this is really the very latest you can take a photo still showing the sunset rainbow colours. Maybe that is a fitting requiem for the two sad teeenagers
Well done for braving the midges.

Well composed Ronnie, the parabolic shape of the trees and foreground directs you towards the bridge. Some pastel colour left but this would look tremendous in a sunset. Worth getting bitten again?? Smile

Ironic that such a peaceful looking location should be the scene of such a tragic event.
Your composition, framed by the trees belies its history and sadness. An image of mixed feelings, Ronnie.

A beautifully chosen peaceful take on what had proven to be a tragic site Ronnie, as others have said, very appropriate.
Growing up in Old Kilpatrick I was very familiar with this locale, though there was no bridge then, the Erskine ferry still plying its way across the river. The main street (Dumbarton Road) was frequently blocked with cars waiting patiently, or otherwise!, for their turn to cross, it seems that, in order to put pressure on the powers that be to build a bridge, whenever a stranger asked either the RAC or AA for driving directions to West Scotland, they were directed to go via the ferry, mind you, the Clyde Tunnel didn't exist then either!
Rgds., Jim
