Photographer's Note

I have already presented on TrekEarth a close-up of the Infinity Bridge in Stockton-on-Tees (click here to see it) but although it was entitled Infinity Symbol the view of the bridge was slightly truncated and therefore the sign of the infinity was not complete. I have waited few months for days to become shorter to try this POV which allowed capturing the whole bridge. The wind tonight created some waves on the water surface and at first there was no reflection at all but fortunately after a while although slightly blurred it appeared.

This photograph was taken near from another bridge over the river Tees which I will share here soon as well. River Tees is a border between counties Durham and North Yorkshire.

Infinity Bridge is a public pedestrian and cycle footbridge across the River Tees in the borough of Stockton-on-Tees. The bridge had the project title “North Shore Footbridge” before being given its official name “Infinity Bridge”, chosen by a panel made from the funding bodies, using names suggested by the public. The name derives from the infinity symbol formed by the bridge and its reflection. The footbridge was completed on time and to budget in December 2008 with 530 workers and uses in total some 450 tonnes of Corus steel, 1.5 km of locked coil steel cable, 780 lights, 5,472 bolts and weighs 1040 tons. The bridge was officially opened on 14 May 2009.
