A Bridge to Nowhere

Far from its more famous neighbours down in London, this simple but beautiful bridge goes about its business with little fame, seeming to only serve a house scattered with dusty flower pots that have long since seen use

        Tony, that very kind of you - much appreciated! It's a place quite local to me to I'm very tempted to go for alternatives in different lighting and weather

      Nice picture. If you can go back in either sunset or sunrise and try a little long exposure. This has good potentional.

          Many thanks for the comment - I've been planning a return visit at some point, likely in the next few months to get such a shot :)

                                                  I must confess there may be a pub not to far down the road but I did try and go there once with a friend and they wouldn't serve us any real food, despite being open and having tables so it's basically dead to me as a pub and hence the nowhere is preserved ;)

Basically the stereotypical village you learn about when doing Geography at school in the UK
