Photographer's Note

One more photo of my walk on Dublin quays. Here is Samuel Beckett bridge on a end of day light. This wonderful bridge has already been shown on TE many times, so it is hard to find an original POV on it. But anyway I try this ...

Samuel Beckett Bridge is a bridge on river Liffey in Dublin. It links North Wall Quay and Sir John Rogerson's Quay. It was built from 2007 and was opened in december 2009. It is 120 metres long and up to 48 metres heigth. It was designed by spanish architect Santiago Calatrava who is famous for a few incredible buildings that were shown on TE already (Liège train station, Tenerife auditorium, Valence opera, Lyon Saint-Exupéry train station, etc...). The bridge is named after Samuel Beckett, one of the most famous irish writers, who was born in Dublin in 1906 and died in Paris in 1989. He was awarded Nobel Prize of Litterature in 1969.
