P365_109 Conwy Bridges, early morning
Dawn on a still spring (yes its March, wahooo) morning and lovely soft light.
I wanted to capture the two road bridges at Conwy from a sharp angle and perspective in a soft gentle light......this meant hanging onto the coping for dear life, back to the traffic for the suspension bridge shot!!!
The suspension bridge is a Grade I listed structure under the care of The National Trust and built around 1822 by Thomas Telford and is thought to be one of the earliest "modern" suspension bridges in the world.
The structure is a single-span suspension bridge of 99m in length which crosses the river Conwy immediately alongside Conwy Castle.
Each of the bridge’s supporting pillars is in the form of twin battlemented towers with central gateway, to harmonize with the castle.
The access gates to this bridge are exactly of the fanned lattice bar type that I posted yesterday for Menai supsension bridge, that too being the work of Telford.
The more recent road bridge with the curved single span was constructed in 1958.
A great way to start the day....its great to be out and about again. Thanks for all the "get well" messages :))
