Photo Spot Details

The city of Bath is a wonderful place to visit – both for exploring the history and the numerous photographic opportunities. Pulteney Bridge which crosses the River Avon (not the same one as found in Shakespeare country) is beautiful at any time of the day. Like much of the city, the bridge is built using Bath Stone, a gorgeous golden limestone. So needless to say, it is probably best photographed when the light is golden. I took this picture near the end of the day.

This was taken with my Nikon D600 using a 24-120mm lens with an aperture of f/13.

If you go to Bath, tour the Roman baths, the abbey and explore the history of the town. So much of the town has wonderful opportunities for photography.

    great pics, Colin. I’ve been through Bath a couple of years ago on a motorcycle tour from Munich to Ireland and back. Great city for pictures, and I happen to have the same camera/lens =)
