Humber Estuary

I recently managed to steal a few moments from a busy schedule to capture the glorious Humber Estuary on a day that had some of the most epic clouds as its backdrop, as well The Humber Bridge nestled across it, this was a truly a photographers dream. The walk from the car park through the Humber Bridge Country Park was also a joy, something I’d recommend to anyone visiting Hull.

I hope you enjoy the photo’s, most of them have detailed description embedded in the WordPress Carousel Gallery.

Another great theme from the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge team, my contribution is The Humber Bridge which was the world’s BIGgest single-span suspension bridge when it opened to traffic on 24 June 1981, the bridge held the record for 16 years, it may now be relegated to sixth place, but it still looks impressive after over 30 years.
