This image was captured not long after I had my second brain haemorrhage, so it brings back loads of memories, some good,some not so good. Anyway it was captured just alongside the Rochester-Strood, or Strood-Rochester Bridge, which crosses the River Medway in Kent. I can't exactly remember every exact detail regarding being there taking it, but I remember sitting in my wheelchair in the freezing cold waiting for that moment when I thought it was time to press the shutter. I did manage to capture a few more images, but this is one of my particular favourites, because of the silky look of the water. I hope you enjoy.

I like that slight area of mauve on the skyline centre, perhaps on a domed building?
