Towards Richmond Hill - # 08/146

This shot was taken back in March '08. Looking through the elegant span of Richmond Lock (here, the portage slips for canoes and skiffs) we can see the 1933 by-pass road bridge, the railway bridge, and in the distance the apartments along the terrace at the top of Richmond Hill. The original 1778 Richmond Bridge is just visible at the very back if you look hard at the left hand far end.


  1. The bridge in the front is just beautiful!!!! What an elegance!

  2. Hi Roon! I’m back to blogosphere after another busy (and annoying) week… ;)
    This bridge is awesome, but the perspective is also excellent!
    I wouldn't enjoying the bakery at Kew Gardens; your dramatic vision of 1000 years history makes it even more impressive... ;) For the rest, if I remember it well, everything seems so elegant in Kew, even the surveillance camera. I was there in 1974 and always wanted to get back, but never made it...
    Meanwhile Blogtrotter is still strolling in the streets of Santiago de Compostela… Enjoy and have a nice weekend!

  3. Il est sur les quais de la Seine un endroit où on voit je ne sais combien de ponts en enfilades, tous d'époque différentes. Et aussi une passerelel pour piétons
    Malgré la morosité de la lumière, tu as bien saisi grâce à ces jolis tons de beige et de vert et de pierre, cette douce ambiance mélancolique d'un fleuve ou d'une rivière passant sous des ponts

  4. Pardon my ignorance - but are these bridges over the Thames. Are they this close together or is it just the perspective. There is so much to look at in this image.

  5. What a splendid example of perspective and how it can make a photo just right. I believe this is wonderful.
