Photographer's Note

Further to the recent shots I've take in London this one is of the infamous Millenium Bridge. Bridges aren't often built across the River Thames in London that often, so to celebrate the Millenium a footbridge was built across the river, taking pedestrians directly from the Tate Modern gallery straight up to St. Pauls' cathedral.

I say infamous because the bridge was closed after it's opening as it was not very stable, casued swaying, and a number of reports of travel sickness (if the media are to be believed).

Now fully re-opened this bridge is a fantastic achievement. This shot is taken with a 500mm lense standing from just infront of St. Paul's looking south at the bridge. The bridge is at least 2-300 metres away.

I love the way this shot makes the bridge look full to capacity, and clearing suffering no swaying problems?!
