Squiggly Bridge, River Clyde

Squiggly Bridge, River Clyde, Glasgow

This evening, I am presenting a portfolio of images to illustrate the dynamic and impressive waterfront on the River Clyde in central Glasgow with its impressive range of architecture and engineering. This former shipbuilding and industrial area has been transformed in recent years and is now an important visitor attraction in its own right. In addition to architects and engineers who wish to study the various structures the locale  is visually appealing and makes  a good study topic for photographers, both day and night.

This image shows the Clde Arc (“Squinty”) Bridge with Finnieston Crane in the background. The latter is a legacy of the area’s shipbuilding past.
