I have seen a number of photos of this bridge, and whilst browsing the work of photographer Mark Page last week I was reminded that I still haven’t taken its picture. So this is my attempt, I was on a bike ride along the Rochdale and Bridgewater canals from my flat in town to the Trafford Centre. The above photograph shows Throstle Nest Bridge with Manchester city centre in the background. Old Trafford football ground is directly behind me as I took this photograph. I am happy with how it turned out as the weather was surprisingly nice in the end. If only there was a canal barge in the foreground, now that would have made this image something special in my eyes. Maybe next time I will camp out until a boat goes under here, but knowing my luck it will probably be facing the wrong way to my viewpoint!
