November 2015 - "Prebends Bridge"
Denis Rigg

Prebends Bridge in Durham was designed by George Nicholson and built from 1772 to 1778. It replaced a temporary bridge built after the footbridge, built in 1574, was swept away during a flood in 1771. Forming part of the estate of Durham Cathedral, the bridge is a Grade 1 listed building and is situated below the Watergate at the end of South Bailey (with which it is in concurrence), just after St Cuthbert's Society.

Although the bridge is wide enough for vehicles, it is mainly used as a footbridge as it only leads to the Riverside paths and up to a closed road barrier to South Bailey. The bridge was restored from 1955 to 1956.

October 2015 - "The Gate"
Panduka de Silva

Jaipur is the largest city of the state of Rajasthan in Northern India; a pre modern city with a rich cultural heritage and with the men and women often dressed in colorful costume…. a widespread means of transport is the ‘two wheelers’ assumed for many an errand.

The evening's rays of light formed an interesting shadow…. the old gent on his bicycle with his long drawn-out shadow made an interesting capture…

April 2015 - "Stemming the Tide"
Philip Pound

The Thames Barrier is located downstream of central London. Operational since 1982, its purpose is to prevent the floodplain of all but the easternmost boroughs of Greater London from being flooded by exceptionally high tides and storm surges moving up from the North Sea.

When needed, it is closed (raised) during high tide; at low tide it can be opened to restore the river's flow towards the sea.

Situated on an island at the point where three great sea lochs meet, and surrounded by some majestic scenery, it is little wonder that the castle is now one of the most visited and important attractions in the Scottish highlands.

February 2015 - "Telford Suspension Bridge"
by Ron Sutton

Traffic across the strait and Anglesey increased in the early 19th century after the Act of Union of 1800, when Ireland joined the United Kingdom. Travellers to the ferry port of Holyhead, where ships left for Ireland, had to make the dangerous crossing after a long and arduous journey from London.

Soon plans were drawn up by Thomas Telford for ambitious improvements to the route from London to Holyhead, including a bridge over the Menai.

January 2015 - "Frozen Fields"
by John Curgenven

Under clear frosty nights in winter, soft ice crystals might form on vegetation or any object that has been chilled below freezing point by radiation cooling. This deposit of ice crystals is known as hoar frost and may sometimes be so thick that it might look like snow.

On this occasion the day's sunshine failed to melt the frost.
