Another shot of Clifton Suspension bridge taken at a particular angle especially for Caedes curves contest.

The foundation stone for this crossing was laid in 1831 but due to continued problems the crossing wasn't completed, & opened until 1864, Isambard Kingdom Brunel the architect had died five years earlier. While this may have been unfortunate I'm sure the legendary engineer would be especially pleased to see it ageing so gracefully 2day. :o)

The composition of this Phil is awesome, great detail and a lot of thought went in to this I would say, an excellent capture indeed.

This one has more curves that a Marilyn Monroe film festival. Great shot Phlossie and I really love the angle. Nice clarity. Good luck in the contest.

Hey Phlossie, love the way you've captured this without getting any people in it! It also blows away anything I took that day! Great shooting angle here, those curves captured brilliantly. This should do well in the comp matey, and great links as always.
