Photographer's Note

Warning - this is purposefully a dark photo. If your monitor is not calibrated reasonably (the grey-bars at the bottom should all be distinguishable) then you may see very little!

This is the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge from a very foggy day in November last year. Though the bridge's lights were on, you couldn't see past half-way. Where they disappear on the image isn't a post-processed face, that's it.

I took this in raw format as I knew that it would be hard to see the figure in the foreground without burning out the lights on the bridge.

It's a little grainy, as I had to use a high ISO due to the low-light. Still had to go with 1/3s exposure, which is a bugger without a tripod :)

Oh, and the title is still accurate when visibility is good, as the Avon gorge which the bridge spans is the city boundary. On the other side you're in Somerset instead of Bristol. If you're from New York, think of the other side as New Jersey ;)
