Tim's One Photograph a Day

The River Severn from Lydney Harbour.

River Severn.

The River Severn from Lydney Harbour.

Looking towards the famous M48 and M4 bridges.

I was spoilt for choice today. Having been offered a lift to Lydney Harbour so I could look around and take some photographs, I could hardly refuse! There is a lot of history here, so an excuse to return again maybe some time in the future to take more. I was blessed with some glorious weather, despite the arrival of storm Ciara looming. At this point the sun, whilst ahead of the camera, is just peeking out through a cloud as we look south west down the River Severn at low tide.

In the distance the M48 and M4 motorway bridges can just be discerned. The wide angle lens is needed to capture the full width and majesty of the river at this point. The low tide shows the sand banks. No doubt at high tide water will be covering these rocks from which the photograph was taken.
