About this spot
There has been a bridge over this part of the Stour for over half a century and has been a vital link for walkers and cyclist connecting Muscliff and Throop. The new bridge, which cost over £400,000, has a concrete gradient creating a flow of noisy, fast water for about 30 feet making for great photo opportunities both from the bridge and off the bridge as well as upstream and down stream shots. There is an incongruity between nature and man here with electric pylons adding to this and by manipulating shutter speeds its possible to blend the colours of bridge, water and pylon as one , however many compositions can be used with only nature as background for example.
