Old and New.

By Satlight  
Over the holiday period i managed to get this shot of the new Mersey Gateway Bridge at high tide, with the old Jubilee Bridge which is now being refurbished, in the distant background. All i had to do now was wait for the three towers to be illuminated with their bright white lights and my minds vision would be complete... So 10mins before light up time i find myself surrounded by security guards and their dogs, even though i was on marsh land i had crossed the road to the construction site, which wasn’t allowed, at this point i was politely told to pack up and leave. Hopefully in a couple of months all construction will be finally finished and i will try again.

Good use of the water to give you midground interest.

It's a great location and your composition is excellent. I hope it all comes together on your next attempt, I'll look forward to it.
