photoblog image CANAL BRIDGE: BATHWICK



comments (20)

We don't see many of that type of road crossings these days Chris. Think we called them Zebra crossings. Lovely image.
Chris: Thank you Scotia, this is quite an ornate canal bridge in Bath, almost certainly early eighteen century

This is a very, very good photograph in my professional opinion Tiff. If you removed all of the colour and posted it on Black Monday it might look perfect.
Chris: If you think the picture is good Chad then it is really worrying but thank you anyway.

How good this looks, Chris - and I like it as it is on my walking route to town
Chris: Charming in its own right isn't it Lisl, I pass this bridge most days but rarely have the inclination to admire the artistry of it

The wonderful lightness and brightness of a May day!
To Scotia & Hamish: Zebra crossings are still usual in our country.
Chris: We have zebra crossings everywhere in Bath Philine. I pass this bridge most days but rarely stop to admire the practical artistry inherent. It would have been built to carry horses & carts over the cut but now takes all sorts of heavy modern traffic, such is the veracity of the design and construction
square balanced trees I like a lot Chris
Chris: Thank you kindly JC

A sparse composition that suits the square format well.
Chris: It is a celebration of May light Mike, at least I hope it is..

HDR looking good Chris
Chris: This wasn't quite HDR Sarah, just a bit twiddled
The sweet, tender young leaves overlooking the bridge take my eye though the bridge is very attractive.
Chris: Thank you kindly Mary
The soft pastel colours are a treat for the eye, Chris. I wish they could design the bridges of today with the same artistry as we see here.
Chris: Oh I agree Bev, this structure looks wonderful doesn't it

Looks very good. I like the combination of the mellow stonework, the trees and the sky. Did you get a quick masterclass on Sunday?
Chris: Bill Phillips told me everything he knows about photography, they were very instructive & colourful seconds..
This is a rather splendid bridge, I must look for it when I finally visit bath again.
Chris: Yes you must Brian
Fantastic Chris..
Chris: Glad you like it Ronky

Great photo chris...been over this bridge many a time
Chris: It's a beautiful but strong construction Shane
Gorgeous sky!
Chris: Thank you Tom, the best of May weather
You pressed the HDR button again didn't you?
Chris: No I didn't, this is in fact bad tone mapping of a single image

That is a lovely bridge Chris, it looks good against the trees and sky
Chris: Thank you kindly Anne, the bridge is an 18th century original - built for horses & carts but now contending with lorries and buses

what a fine sky behind those delightful trees. Could have done with that sunshine today!
Chris: In Bath we have been largely lucky with the weather today Paul, thank you
I love the sky in this photo.
Chris: This is an evening sky in Bath, where I live Stacy
I do like the block work!
Chris: Intricate and fine isn't it Elizabeth
