Born from a regeneration mind,
storm driven by childhood stories,
rain filled clouds and water filled light,
a vision of now on a Saturday screen.

This wonderful bridge spans on of the Salford Quays on the outskirts in Manchester. Now add a normal Manchester rain sky, a bit of sci fi from the pens of the greats, the magic of movies and radio scripts and you end up here.

Converted into black and white and best viewed large.

Shot on an Olympus E30.

    What do you mean – “normal Manchester rain sky?” ;-) What a fabulous shot – I know that bridge well but never seen it looking like that!

  • lol well it does have more cloudy rainy days than sunshine ;) and it was warm rain when it fell lol This is such a great place to shoot, you are lucky if you are near here

    Followed closely by Timothy Dalton’s magical line: “I knew you were up to something, though I’ll confess I hadn’t thought of necrophilia.” Brilliant shot – takes me back to my daze as a minion of Ming. Excellent.

  • LOL was this when you dated that winged warrior to check the ping theory worked on Mars too? :)
