[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Pero's Bridge is a modern footbridge spanning Bristol Harbour which opened in 1999, but is named after an enslaved African-Caribbean man who was the personal servant of merchant John Pinney in the late 18th century.

It's a bascule bridge, which means it can open up in the centre to enable taller boats to pass through the harbour.

The dominant horn-shaped sculptures at the heart of the design act as counterweights for the section that lifts up, and have given the bridge the nickname 'Horned Bridge'.

Hi Geoff,

This is such a lovely capture from the Pero's bridge and interestingly I have been to this place 4 years ago. Even I stayed in the youth hostel, located in vicinity of this bridge :)

Your capture is well done, taken with nice clarity and light management. Great sharpness and well chosen POV. the lights add great mood into the shot and the reflections within the water are just amazing.
Well seen!
