Photographer's Note

This photo was taken on a sunny Saturday afternoon not long after the new Riverside Museum opened in Glasgow. The museum, which was designed by Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid, is located at Pointhouse Quay on the north bank of the River Clyde and is the new home of Glasgow's Transport Museum. Sadly, I found the contents of the museum not as exciting as I had hoped but I am sure I will be back again to take further photos of the building itself.

In the distance, the remaining docks at Govan on the south of the river can just be seen, with the Glasgow Quay housing development seen on the opposite bank. The Clyde has seen some of the most active regeneration in Europe over the past decade or so with new shopping, leisure and housing complexes interspersed with remnants of it's past history as the location of the busiest shipyards in the world.

The photo was shot in RAW and converted to B&W in Aperture 3. The resulting image was then opened in Photoshop CS4 where the image was duplicated in a second layer, colours inverted and a diffusion glow added. The two resulting layers were then blended to bring out the detail in the clouds.
