Popped down to The Bridge at Crossways, Dartford this morning. I was hoping for mist but instead was rewarded with no wind and perfect reflections, pretty rare on a major river.
That is a stunner Derek. I've never seen it this calm before, infact never seen a decent shot of this bridge full stop. Top job!

I have never seen it this calm either Harsharn.
Thanks for the comments guys and many grateful thanks to Clive for his GEA and Harsharn and Yung for their UA's.
Stunning. The light must have been to die for.

I have only photographed the bridge previously at sunset but knew that when low light hits the structure it takes on a pretty impressive red glow. I had a tense time waiting for the sun and praying that the wind didnt pick up though.
A slack tide and no wind - perfect conditions and a great angle on this bridge, Derek. If only I could get up that early

6.55 am on the Metadata Dave. Almost civilized!
Wow! I don't think I've ever seen the Thames so calm either. You have caught it at exactly the right time Derek. Love the detail!
Absoltely stunning shot Derek. I take it there was a polarising filter involved. Brilliant.
Not often a clear blue sky is welcome, but here it is perfect to highlight the shape of the bridge. Beautiful work Derek

3 stop ND Grad (soft) and a 10 stop ND Filter.
Can't add anything. All been said. Brilliant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Superb just brilliant.
Perfect Derek, majestic image.
Rare indeed, you got a perfect mirror like reflection though, it looks fabulous. I've spent the past week in Valencia cursing ripples
On point Derek! I really like the composition and tone.
Beautiful light and tones Derek, absolute stunner! This gets my virtual UA as I already have given the real one out today..sorry

No problem. Good as the real thing wolfy.
That's a superb image, Derek. I shake my head in wonder. Brilliant work and up there with your very best. I'm green with envy, m8. (No UA available at the mo so accept a virtual one and if we ever meet it'll be my round.)
Excellent work as always Derek!
The super blues Derek, first class comp too.
Had to wait up to give this my UA, Derek - cheaper than a pint
Time to give this the real thing now

Ok I lied. The real thing is better
Many thanks wolfy.
Great composition Derek.
Truly superb work.
A beautiful image with wonderful varying shades of blue. Ann.
great colours and composition. I've been over the bridge many times at all hours of the day and have never seen the Thames looking so good, it's usually a horrible muddy brown colour.
top marks for a top shot.
Superb image Derek
What to add to such well deserved comments? It's crystal clear Derek, superb reflections and a superb composition too - congrat's
wow Derek ,that is amazing to see, not a ripple!!! great detail ,but ohh that reflection
congrats on all the awards and votes
With the strong geomentry of the bridge and its reflection and the featureless, intense blue sky and water, I reckon that a mono conversion would be even better - if such a thing is possible!
Excellent work great portrait of the bridge
