The Infinity Bridge is a public pedestrian and cycle footbridge across the River Tees in the borough of Stockton-on-Tees in the north east of England.

A special feature is made of the way the bridge is lit at night. At night the bridge handrail and footway are lit with custom made blue and white LED lighting built into the handrail that changes colour as users cross. Attached to the steel cable ties are white metal-halide up-lighters to illuminate the white painted bridge arches, and blue LED down-lighters to illuminate the water and ground surfaces immediately below the deck.


At night from certain viewing angles when the river surface is flat calm, the twin arches together with their reflection in the river appear as an infinity symbol ∞, and it is this effect that inspired its name.

The B&W one is my favorite, but I find the last one very interesting as well: I imagine that is how a fish sees the bridge.

badlydrawnroy lovely set i like number 3 a lot a great shot.
What was this taken at 16mm? or have they been corrected
I am not familiar with the 8-16mm but presume it must be fisheye no.
I did a shhot of infinity bridge with a 28mm prime on the nex and i can assure you it is very big and requires a lens like this
If your interested

What a great piece of modern architecture and very well presented - #3 is the pick for me.

eddieitman, no problem with your post.

#3 taken at 11mm, no corrections applied.

Never been to Butterfly World, Preston Farm or Croft circuit, better add to my 'to do' list.

" I imagine that is how a fish sees the bridge. " thanks Serdar, I can use that.

Top notch set Roy. Lighting , color and reflections are very moving. Timing is so critical to catch lighting like this before the window of opportunity closes and not to forget the great perspective and composition here. As always Roy well done.

These are great Roy. The reflections are really effective. I like #3, #5 and #7 the best I think.
