Sunday Snap - Over the river


No correct guesses for last week's Sunday Snap Castle in the sky. The romantic castle in question was Bamburgh Castle on the Northumberland coast. I took the photo from Seahouses Harbour.

For this week we've gone from beautiful sunsets to gritty industrialism. This bridge takes its name from the river it crosses. Opened in 1928 it has become a symbol of the city it links too. Over the years it has been painted in various colours but currently sports its original colour of green.

So, of course the question for this week is – what bridge is this?

    1. Yes, we're always out and about! Not the the Humber Bridge unfortunately. It's actually been some years since I went over so perhaps a revisit is in order!

    1. No it was good guess! I think the Humber is actually classed as an estuary rather than a river.

    1. I'm not one usually for messing about with photographs but I did think black and white would work well with this style of shot.

  10. I see someone's already got there - my guess would have been the Severn Bridge (I'm sure that was green at one point!)

    1. That's one bridge I've never been over as we enter always Wales further north. Good guess as it spans a river of the same name. I have no idea what colour it is though!

  11. I had no idea what the bridge was but I am quite surprised that someone actually guessed it.
