Very impressive, very impressive indeed!!! Find this even more powerful than the previous one (Bridge over River Severn). Love this a great deal!


(PS. Personally, I might like to see a less contrasty sky at the top. It's dramatic but might be competing with the subject bridge a little. Just my immediate response.)
