Weekly Photo Challenge: Big

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.

The Humber Bridge, near Kingston upon Hull, England, is a 2,220 m (2,428 yards) single-span suspension bridge, which . It is the sixth-largest of its type in the world. It spans the Humber (the estuary formed by the rivers Trent and Ouse) between Barton-upon-Humber on the south bank and Hessle on the north bank, connecting the East Riding of Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire.

      1. I know what you mean. Congratulations on that one, that’s for sure Carl. 🙂

  1. I like the fact that you consciously looked for an angle which supports your story about the bridge being the biggest. Nice perspective.

  2. Fantastic Photo. I’ve been across the Humber Bridge…scary!
    The drive up to it is best because you can really appreciate it’s size.
    Seemed to take forever to get across!!
    But this is a really great picture of a really big bridge 🙂

  3. Reblogged this on carlonatura and commented:
    Wonderfull photos in your blog and I like the custom of it. I opened a blog in memory of my father and I want know what do you think about it, if I don’t disturb you. thanks

  4. Sometimes we need to see the world from the underside. Low angle photography is under appreciated. Your photo not only stretches the dimensions but sells the idea of being one of the longest suspension bridges in the world. Really good approach.

    1. Thanks for the fabulous comments, I totally agree about the low angle shots, I was in the clock tower of our local town hall yesterday doing some similar shots looking up into its inner hidden spaces…

      It’ll be my next blog post hopefully
