Back to the mono theme today been having a look through my hard drive looking for conversions.
Let me know your thoughts.Smile

This little suspension bridge is only a couple of miles from its big brother the Humber bridge.
Horkstow Bridge is one of the earliest surviving suspension bridges in the country. It is unusual small suspension dating back to 1835-6. The bridge has two elegant classical style arched towers made of rusticated stone. The wooden plank decking is suspended by double wrought iron chains. The decking is of a convex shape and moves about when crossing in a car. Horkstow Bridge was built originally to cross the New River Ancholme to give access to the Brick Kilns that run along the River Banks. This is one of 7 bridges that was built as part of the New River Ancholme Drainage Scheme. Today, it is used by farmers, ramblers, anglers & cyclists. The bridge is still open to vehicles however there is only a dirt track running along the west bank of the river. The bridge was designed by Sir John Rennie and is one of a handful in Britain to have remained as originally designed. As a result it is regarded to be of historical importance and was restored in the late 90's. Structural repairs were carried out and the accommodation bridge was re-decked and re-cabled by Spencers who received the Historic Bridge Award in 1999.

Thanks for your C&C on my previous always appreciated Wink

Wonderful perspective. I think I would have lightened up on the sky a bit. Although it is dramatic, it draws the eye upward and away from that great bridge which is the main subject.

Very well composed to achieve symmetry and I do like your B and W conversion and rather 'gritty' and atmospheric presentation: and an interesting narrative that adds to one's appreciation of the image.
