Even though I've not uploaded any photos recently I have managed to get out there and collect a bunch of photos. I've spent the last two weeks in Cambridge - one more than I should have done thanks to the chaos at Heathrow - collecting a variety of winter photos. It has helped having a solid coating of snow throughout Cambridge to really bring out the wintery feel. Snow is not something that happens in Cambridge all too often (or in the places I frequently visit) so it was a great opportunity to get out there and shoot something different. Over the coming weeks I'll be posting a variety of photos from a Cambridge under snow fall.
The first photo I'm sharing is of the Mathematical Bridge. A popular fable explains how the bridge was built by Sir Isaac Newton without the use of nuts and bolts and that a students or fellows of the university took it apart trying to work out how it works. They were unable to find out how it works and had to resort to nuts and bolts to put it back together again. In reality nuts and bolts are an integral part of the design.
The photo is a 3 exposure HDR processed through photomatix pro. I've applied some minor colour and correction adjustments in aperture.
