the peace bridge

I took this photo last July when we were at the Derry train station to pick up a friend.

The Peace Bridge is a cycle and foot bridge across the River Foyle in Derry, Northern Ireland. It opened on 25 June 2011, connecting Ebrington Square with the rest of the city centre.

  3. By a bike and footbridge the designers can go completely lose because no much weigh to calculate in the design. Nice one Bill.

  4. A bridge is as good a symbol of Peace as I can imagine. Long may it stand.

  7. That is a beautiful bridge and a beautiful shot. You got the light just right. I imagine it is also a great boon to the community. We need more pedestrian bridges!

  15. Oh look at that, a new header shot since I've been away, love it! Super bridge shot too. Looks like you had a fab time on holiday with your daughter Bill, always a wee bit sad when they head off again though!

  25. What a thrill it must be to walk Peace Bridge . . .
    I think I would feel safer walking than biking . . .

    Looking up Moville on my iPad map . ..
    Where are you from Giants Causeway . . .
    I found Moville very North, at the East in the peninsula.
    Going to look it up more.
