A very well observed, composed, exposed and captured image, captured from a good point of view allowing you to take in this rather quirky bridge design, which I rather like.

You are demonstrating so well that photographers should walk around their subjects and try many angles.
Each one you've chosen gives a totally different perspective.
the reflections in the water make this extra special.

missed this Ronnie, the bleak winter sun is perfectly placed, really well composed

Ronnie, sorry has taken so long to get to this one from the 2 shots from here. The lower sun well position I might add brings lovely tones and rippled reflection. We got the train to West end last Monday and went to the tall ship had a great afternoon there.
