Media City Footbridge

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 26 March 2013 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

Photographed at dawn a couple of months ago in some typical wintery Manchester fog and drizzly rain.

This bridge by Gifford and Wilkinson Eyre is not far from my office. It was opened in 2011 and crosses the Manchester Ship Canal in Salford Quays. It links the Imperial War Museum North with the BBC Media City complex.

NIKON D800 4 seconds F/16.0 ISO 100 19 mm (35mm equiv.)

Nice foggy atmosphere well caught by this splendid B&W mood, very good framing. A place I know, but seen only during day light (my daughter is living in the surburbs of Manchester, on we visit her 2 or 3 times/year)

@CLODO: Thanks Claude! (PS - send me an email if you want a guided tour around some of the lesser known parts of Manchester city centre that are interesting photographically next time you are over)
