Isolated foot bridge

Isolated foot bridge - photo by Alex Leonard

Photo Description

This foot bridge at the easterly end of Ballycastle’s beach leads out to a rough outcrop of rocks which is constantly exposed to the mercy of the sea.

Generally you can get over to this foot bridge without getting your feet wet, but today I needed to time my movements with the lowest ebb of the incoming waves to get out to it to let me take a few photos a little closer to the waves (but at a safe distance I assure you).

I felt it was quite beautiful contrasted against the bright white of the thrashing surf.

As it was the end of the day I had to use a wider aperture than I would have liked, but I think this photo has come out ok.

What do you think?
