Shot on 1st April last year on a blazing hot day (we had some last April if you recall, and precious few since) with ne'er a cloud in the sky.
There was another photographer there, too, dashing about madly with a very large and expensive looking Canon lens (and camera, of course!) and my later perusal of this site revealed him to be another EPZ member, so I've been a bit imtimidated to post this until now, but hey, what the hell!
I shot this fully intending it to be a mono image - the featureless sky and stark shadows, I felt, really lent themselves to a mono treatment with the lines of the cables and the shadow of the bridge acting like an arrow pointing at the tower.
Conversion was done with channel mixer, followed by selective contrast adjustments and then converted to quadtone.
For those who don't recognise it, this is Brunel's famous Clifton Suspension Bridge, spanning the Avon Gorge in Bristol.
Thanks for stopping by and, of course for all comments and votes on my last upload(s).
