Like the sweep of the bridge which suits the panoramic image.
You've done well to keep the flare out of the picture

Beautifully composed. My latest upload was also a sunset from Friday evening — I was hoping that the unpronounceable volcano's ash would lead to something spectacular like this but it didn't, up in Leeds. Sad

I was rushing to go large as soon as I saw it and it was one of yours....gotta be one of the best images of the bridge I have seen Bill - this is top notch matey...just love everything about it - I will let them that know critique tell you whats right/wrong with it but for me it's a goodie !!

As Platchet would say if I could give an award I would (we are both tight non paying E2 members...lol!)

Oi Pete, where are you??? Smile

PS...Just wondering is this morning not evening?

Many thanks folks! Most appreciated definitely!! Smile

I too was hoping for something spectacular, Dave, especially in the way of clouds. They didn't arrive but what remained was pretty nice.

Thanks enormously, Alan for your very kind words - made my evening as it happens! Oh, it was definitely evening!

Cheers all,

Bill

...Out walking the dog I was having a conversation with Mitchy and then it all became clear...I thought this weas taken from "our side" not yours !! Of course it would be sill to get up at stupid oclock to do a sunrise on our side when you can have a lie on and do the opposite (sunset) on yours! I didn't realise the view of the bridge was so similar from both sides....as been explained by Phil though the "s" curve does make it look the same Smile

It's surprising how far the sunset and sunrise moves round throughout the year Alan! Then we have the tide and weather to contend with aswell...lol

Superb Bill. I think where you were stood is one of the best viewpoints for the bridge. The curve is superb and topped off by the fantastic colours of the sun. Pleased to be 30.
