Sunrise on the River Severn

The mist rose like steam.


The River Severn, longest river in Britain is 220 miles from source to the sea. The name Severn is derived from the Latin word Sabrina, previously Hafren in Welsh, which means "boundary". Its source is in the Plynlimon Mountains in West Wales and it flows through the counties of Powys, Shropshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire, finally flowing into the Bristol Channel.

Kingsland Toll Bridge, Shrewsbury was built in 1883 to link the up-market suburb of Kingsland with the town centre. Its span is 65m, and the bridge deck is suspended from the arch.


Thank you for looking at my photographs and for any comments it is much appreciated
