I saw a photograph of this bridge in a recent competition, and asked the author where he had taken it. Realising it was within walking distance of my flat (just behind Deansgate, towards Salford Station) I went down pretty much the next day. Sadly, when I went the weather and lighting was very bland and flat, without a nice blue sky the picture above looks very different. A week ago (on my little photo walk around Manchester), I went back to the area outside the Lowry Hotel to take photographs of the bridge. It reminds me of other modern looking bridges in and around Manchester including the one in Castlefield and the one across the Manchester Ship Canal at Salford Quays.
