Artist's description:

This image is a composite of multiple images of the Bath Road Bridge which carries the main A4 road over Brunel's railway adjacent to Temple Meads station in Bristol. This is a massive structure carrying several lanes of traffic and footpaths both sides. It is formed from very substantial Vierendeel curved trusses which create an arc shape across the chasm over which it crosses.
The image was created using a camera held so that the curve of the truss was the common datum. When the images were combined the datum was kept as far as possible as a horizontal straight line thereby causing the steel parapet wall, footpath and roadway to form a curve which is the inverse of the Vierendeel girders.
The inclusion of people crossing the bridge accentuates the effect and the colour and tones of the painted bridge add to the beauty of the final image.
