Still Waters

Another image from the trip to Glasgow the other evening. Here, I was struck by how very still the waters of the river were, with barely a ripple to be seen. I liked the way the illumination of the Clyde Arc continually changed colour – red, at the time I made this exposure.

A wide (but closer) view of the Clyde Arc, or ‘Squinty Bridge’. This is one of my favourite views of this part of town, as the natural composition of the place seen from this viewpoint, is quite nice. As I recall, this was an exposure of 260 seconds, made in the late evening twilight.

Glasgow likes it’s bridges. The Clyde Arc – more colloquially known as the ‘Squinty Bridge’ because of the odd angle at which it crosses the River Clyde – is a recent addition to the collection.

It’s an impressive structure and allows for all manner of slightly abstract shots, from the wide to the detailed.

A friday evening trip to the riverside allowed me to make some nice long exposure images in the golden light of the late evening. Unusually for me, this very wide shot of the River Clyde was one of them – I don’t usually shoot as wide as this but I did like this image.

This is another image that I’ve processed in several different ways; on this occasion, I wanted something verging toward hi-key, to try to bring out the strong shapes and tones contained within the image. It meant losing a lot of the detail that was already present in the sky, but I think the result was worth it.
