Monochrome Monday

I love the Severn Bridge. The 'new' 1996 Severn Bridge. When we're going anywhere that involves us crossing it I always make the effort to stay awake until we've gone over - and that's really something for me as my head starts to droop the minute I get in the car. I don't know what makes it so beautiful, whether it's the lines, the colours, the surrounding view of the river or, more likely, a combination of all those things.

To take part in Monochrome Monday, visit Aileni.

I haven't seen this version but I did cross the old one the first day it was opened. I had a load on slides taken from behind the wheel... all gone now.

Looks as though it has similar lines to our Alex Fraser Bridge. Next time - we'll definitely have to cross it. I've always taken the older bridge the - what - 3 times I've been to Wales. :D

There is something about vast human structures. Shows how we can conquer almost anything when we put our mind to it.

Great photo of the Severn Crossing, when my son first went to Uni in Wales my first thought was 'Oh no I have to drive across that bridge', now years later I love it and enjoy seeing the water at different stages (not when I am driving!)
