On our way back from our holiday in North Yorkshire, we made a slight detour to the Humber Bridge, or more specifically, under the Humber Bridge. Just as I was about to get out of the car and get us all ice creams from the van parked up on the grass verge, the van pulled away and left the area… (I didn’t think I smelt that bad though). We decided to have a little wonder down along the shore line as the tide was a bit out. I captured a couple of shots of the bridge from the gravel shore, this being one of my favourites. I chose to process it as a black and white, giving it a wonderful moody feel.
“The Humber Bridge, near Kingston upon Hull, England, is a 2,220 metres (7,280 ft) single-span suspension bridge, which opened June 1981. It is the seventh-longest of its type in the world. It spans the Humber (the estuary formed by the rivers Trent and Ouse) between Barton-upon-Humber on the south bank and Hessle on the north bank, connecting the East Riding of Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire”
