A Spaceship in Salford?
..erm, no... not really. As with the previous few images in this short series, it was taken down at Salford Quays with Andy Rouse one evening last week when the weather was unseasonably calm.
The image is of the Millennium Bridge which straddles the Manchester Ship Canal. It is a 91m long lift bridge which was completed in 2000. The bridge has a lift of 18m and allows larger vessels to pass underneath.
The bridge is lit with Philips Colour Kinetics LED lighting and changes colour over the course fo several minutes. The bridge was floated into position when under construction.
