Photographer's Note

I had a back luck to weather during this trip as well. On the first day, which we spent mainly at the Warwick Castle, the weather was changeable but acceptable, but the following two days were terrible weather-wise. On the very same day on which we arrived in Bristol from Warwick, I tried to take some blue hour photos of the most famous Bristol landmark which is the Clifton Suspension Bridge (in this photo). A night before going there I contacted Jorge who took a nice photo of this bridge:

asking about the point of view he has used. It was not easy to figure it out from the Google Maps.
Nevertheless it was not the point of view which was the problem. It somehow didn't work as expected. At the earlier time, the surrounding was well visible but the sky was not in the blue hour moment yet. Later, when the sky was amazing the setting was dark and the lights of the bridge very bright.
I think I would need few more attempts to get it right.
Also the level of water in the river Avon below was very low so to be able to see the river I needed to go to the very right end of the footpath, and from that angle the bridge view was less attractive,
Maybe during the day I could spend more time researching various angles.
Anyway, on the next day morning I went to the same place again with the hope to get some better photos of this bridge but the weather was really bad and so were the photos.
