Under the Bridge by andycoleborn

Under the Bridge

I cross the QEII bridge maybe 3 or 4 times a month and ever since starting this project, I've wanted to stop off and take this shot. I have previously uploaded images taken whilst driving over it and from a fair distance away, but never from this angle before.

This is taken from Kent, on the south of the river looking north. I'd been to Bluewater shopping centre and whilst driving home, I thought I would see if I could get close to the bridge. My route took me through an industrial park then not being able to drive any further, I walked the rest of the way - this was as close as I could get.

It was grey and drizzly all day but thankfully cleared up as the sun set.

Other than a quick trip out and this snap, I had a waste of a day waiting in for a plumber. I'd booked a 8am-noon slot.. He turns up at 2:30pm!! If I wanted an afternoon appointment... I'd have made one...
Ah, lovely, Andy :)

Great bridge shot, glad the weather cleared and gave you this super sky. I'm forever trying to find a good vantage point for something large like a bridge that I see all the time, they are amazingly hard to find. Good job finding this one.
