RAMSEY SWING BRIDGE


Looks like everyone has gone back to work. Hardly ever see Ramsey Swing Bridge empty like this. The tide is high too, as high as it can get without flooding. Great weather for ducks and not one in sight.

Used the wide angled lens for this one to capture the length of the bridge and the backdrop of the Quay road, with a further backdrop of the mist covered mountains.

beautiful photo. and yes you can quote me on "the best holiday ever!" i was with a group that was studying the manx language and got to stay on IOM for two blissful weeks. unfortunately the american dollar is nearly worthless and without a grant to study i am stuck on this side of the pond...but i am desperate to come back. one day...

That wideangle lens comes into it's own, doesn't it? I think I'm going to have to post up my own IoM photos after looking at yours!

Absolutely stunning, the the purple hues of the background can make you lean into the photo for a closer view!

Thank you Lily.I do agree with your observation that the "purple hues" lead one through the photograph, over the bridge and inviting one into the town itself.

Obviously on the same wavelegnth? Ruuning along the same road so to speak.

They've repainted the ironwork for the bridge since my time...
