Across the Peace Bridge
The Peace Bridge was opened in Derry, Northern Ireland in June 2011 and has swiftly become a major feature of the city. It sits astride the River Foyle and is intended for pedestrians and cyclists. The bridge is designed to bring together Derry’s divided geography and communities.
This contemporary structure with its graceful pinnacles and curves is a draw to the photographer. The city looks weathered against the bridge, which enjoys a steady stream of human traffic. Reflections of the Peace Bridge in the water it crosses and its own detail make it a joy to capture.

This bridge has been elevated to one of the best I have visited and photographed. The sense that this has brought a new lease of life to the fabric of Derry came across quite palpably.
