Made the most of a recent visit to Glasgow knowing that the wind conditions were going to be fairly good as was the weather/sky.
I have taken photos on the River Clyde in the past and in fact one of my most successful photos to date is one I took of the Glasgow SECC (also known as the Armadillo) reflected in the Clyde waters.
Since that photo was taken a new bridge had been added over the River Clyde – the Clyde Arc also known as the ‘Squinty Bridge’. It is different from your average road bridge in it’s design and spans the river at an angle. It was closed not long after it had been opened after a support cable snapped and was closed for some months before it was declared safe again!
The bridge lighting also cycles through a range of colour if you wait long enough!
I am going to remember this photo for some time to come because 30 seconds after taking it, I slipped on the icy path, went feet first into the air and landed on my side! Luckily my camera was fine but I was in a lot of pain (and can still feel it!). I had to call it a day after that as I was struggling but was pleased I got the image I was after – as they say “no pain, no gain“…
