Holt Bridge & the River Dee

  1. I was shooting dragonflies beside the River Dee, but I couldn't resist a quick snap of this wonderful red sandstone bridge. This part of the river is the border between England and Wales: the village of Holt is on the left (west) bank in Denbighshire and Farndon at the other end of the bridge is in Cheshire.

    It's very peaceful now, but when the bridge was built in the 13th century the Welsh Marches were a dangerous area. I imagine the bridge as a medieval version of Checkpoint Charlie.

    Shot with D200 and 300mm f/4 AF-S Nikkor.

    A very pleasant view...
     
  3. Thank you, Gale. It's a modest shot, but I think it suits the subject.

    Nice shot, Alan!

    That's one part of England I've not been to. Thanks for sharing.
