Millennium Bridge, Castleford

By TrevBatWCC    
Still in mono mode, and this time a bit closer to home. Though it's only about 16 km (10 miles) from where I live, I've only ever been to Castleford about 3 times. This was the last time, back in 2009, on a Camera Club project, I think it was. This is the Castleford Footbridge which spans the River Aire, built to unite the north and south banks of the Castleford's riverside community connecting Aire Street to Mill Lane. It has three arched seating sections running along the centre, as can be seen in the lead and V1. Though not officially opened until 4th July 2008, itís known as the Millennium Bridge, and is 130 metres in length.
The lead image was taken from the town centre end, V1 & V2 from the opposite end.

Three super mono versions...v1 looks a rad more inviting, but all are well processed...10 miles is outside your range at the moment... feels like it will take forever to get back on the road again 🥴

Very well done as usual Trev. I particularly like the low camera position in the the lead. I think this makes for a more dynamic image. Wink

Your mono mood and low viewpoint combine to make a most striking image.
