Actually, it's Hammersmith Bridge but it looks eminently suitable for a Halloween upload with the towers looking very 'Count Duckula'.
The bridge connects Hammersmith to Barnes in South West London. Hammersmith was the site of the first suspension bridge over the Thames, though the current bridge - known for its green and gold colour scheme - is the second on the site, constructed in 1887 to designs by famous sewer architect Joseph Bazalgette. Having survived bombing by the Real IRA in 2000, the bridge was renovated, and then awarded Grade II listed status in 2008. It is an important landmark for those watching or participating in an annual boat race between two universities from Oxford and Cambridge, as well as other rowing races.
(Scarborough was a nice break with the parents, although a little cold and damp... mostly the rain but also my inability to dodge waves )
An experiment with high ISO on this image... Iso 6400, 1sec, f16, 50mm, tripod and remote. Topaz Denoise used in processing.
Thanks Mark, Trev and Chrstine for your UAs on Coastal Colours and everyone else that popped in/commented. Very much appreciated.
