Photographer's Note

Toda... I purposely paid my 1.50 Toll, drove an extra 2 hours so I could get an image of this famous bridge.. called the Humber Bridge- Linking East Yorkshire with Lincolnshire in North East England.. a very import and strategic location of the United Kingdom..

The light was not great so I have converted it to BW- which seems to have ironed out the poor lighting .. well only some of this is true.. the real reason is that MJR and myself have a challenge to paint the map of the UK yellow.. Not sure how far this competition will go.. but it should be fun and get us to places we would not normally go.. like the Humber Bridge.. Must say it was impressive and have copied Wikki for all those who have not paid their 1.50 Toll....

From Wikki
The Humber Bridge, near Kingston upon Hull, England, is a 2,220 m (2,428 yards) single-span suspension bridge, which opened to traffic on 24 June 1981. It is the sixth-largest of its type in the world. It spans the Humber (the estuary formed by the rivers Trent and Ouse) between Barton-upon-Humber on the south bank and Hessle on the north bank, connecting the East Riding of Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire both of which were previously in the non-metropolitan county of Humberside.

As of 2006[update], the bridge carried an average of 120,000 vehicles per week.[1] The toll was 3.00 each way for cars (higher for commercial vehicles), which made it the most expensive toll crossing in the United Kingdom.[2] As of 1 April 2012, the toll was reduced to 1.50 each way after the UK government cut 150 million from the bridge's current debt.[3][
