The Town Bridge in Huntingdon

Another city in the River Great Ouse, Huntingdon, is not very far from the Chinese Bridge in Godmanchester. This old bridge in Huntingdon is a well-preserved medieval stone bridge that connects Huntingdon to Godmanchester. The current bridge was constructed around 1332, with work starting on both banks or the river. It was intended for both pedestrian and horse-drawn transport but now serves exclusively for light vehicular traffic. There’s another bridge parallel to the town bridge just a few meters upstream, it is now used as a pedestrian bridge.

It was a quick shoot at this place, just a shoot-and-run kind of evening. The scene was quite one-dimensional and as usual, light was limited. But I did like how the textures on the stone bridge mimics that of the building right next to it, and the warm reddish-gold reflections on the water was a nice plus.
