This shot is the new footbridge connecting the city to the new office development on the south of the river. On a still day the reflections are always a feature and it was just a case of composing the shot and then waiting for people. I always try to involve a human element in my photos.

    It was nothing but grey skies and rain for days on end, but I decided that you don't always need epic sunsets for great photos. The dull weather also allowed me to get a 20 second exposure with an ND1000 filter giving that classic wispy water look. A wide angle lens allowed me to get nice and close and emphasize the subject, being that close also meant there was some close calls with the occasional freak wave coming up to where I had my tripod and me running back up the beach to escape them
