London Millennium Bridge and St Paul’s Dome

15 Mar

London Millennium Bridge

A photograph of the St Paul’s Cathedral Dome as seen from the floor of the Millennium Bridge at twilight last night. I like the effect of the slow shutter-speed on the pedestrians.

From WikiPedia:

The London Millennium Footbridge is a pedestrian-only steel suspension bridge crossing the River Thames in London, England, linking Bankside with the City. It is located between Southwark Bridge (downstream) and Blackfriars Bridge (upstream). With construction beginning in 1998, it is owned and maintained by the Bridge House Estates a charitable trust overseen by the City of London Corporation.

Londoners nicknamed the bridge the Wobbly Bridge after crowds of pedestrians felt an unexpected swaying motion on the first two days after the bridge opened. The bridge was closed and modified, and further modifications eliminated the “wobble” entirely.
