Photographer's Note

History :

Glasgow Bridge stands at the foot of Jamaica Street and was built on the site of an earlier Glasgow Bridge which was designed by the Scottish engineer Thomas Telford, first President of the Institution of Civil Engineers.

The desire for a wider crossing, the deepening of the river by intermittent dredging, and the removal of the weir above Albert Bridge in 1880, all conspired against the old bridge and in 1899, after many schemes had been considered, a replacement bridge was built.

By popular demand, it was designed as a replica of Telford's bridge, although 20ft wider and founded on steel caissons up to 100ft deep.

On of the very first photo of mine - with my first camera. Attracted by a beautiful night river scenery I decided to take a shot. I used long (30s) shutter speed to soften the water and get all the light reflections. Tripod was essential of course :).
