A clever point of view you choose with much care, I guess.
The result is superb.
i love the play between the line of the bridge and the one of it's shadow.

@Gérard Beullac: Thanks Gérard! We don't get that much sunshine where I live in the North of England so when I go on holiday somewhere sunny it's a delight to be able to compose photos with shadows.
