A beautifully processed and captured image Derek - the stillness I feel in your image certainly belies the reality of the place...!!!

Thanks Helen. I also like the way that the shadow of the stanchion is cast onto the wires/cables.

Great image Derek -super composition, with so many "lines" converging to the end of the bridge, leading you all the way through the frame.
