I did a charity walk over the top of the Transporter Bridge in Middlesbrough UK last week. Painted in bright blue the bridge is about 100 years old and is 160 feet high.
It can carry 9 cars at a time over the river Tees in its yellow painted travelling car.

Very interesting shot of what must be a photographers dream. Is the feloow with the lime0green vest guarding the bridge?

Can't say I've ever heard of a Blue painted bridge, red, gold and rust yes, but blue. never. I bet we'll get a picture of a blue bridge from anyone within fifty miles of one of these things.

Nice detailed shot. Well done!

Aloha

Great shot! The is a lift bridge in Victoria, B.C., that is painted blue, very close to this color. I have a shot of it in my database (18,000 pictures) somewhere.

This is also a great vanishing point shot.
