There’s snow in them there hills

Posted by Jackie on March 22, 2010


I was really pleased with the zoom lens to be able to capture several landmarks in one go *and* the hills in the background as well with such clarity. Landmarks you may recognise from previous photos here are (L-R) the SECC (Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre, also known as the Armadillo), the Finnieston Crane, the top of the Clyde Arc (or Squinty Bridge), and the Main Building of Glasgow University.

It’s been a while since I’ve had a picture of the Squinty Bridge up. This is taken on the bridge looking to the north bank of the river.

Another bridge

Posted by Jackie on July 4, 2009


Further down the river from yesterday’s bridge is its more famous and bigger neighbour the Squinty Bridge (it’s called the Clyde Arc really but nobody calls it that). This picture was taken last autumn, I think they’d only just started building yesterday’s bridge (which I still don’t know what it’s called!) then. The crane is the Finnieston Crane which has also featured here several times already.

BBC reflections

Posted by Jackie on April 16, 2009


This is the new(ish) BBC Scotland building, on Pacific Quay. In the distance you can see the Finnieston Crane and the Squinty Bridge, and that’s the BBC’s next door neighbour the Science Centre, IMAX cinema and Glasgow Tower reflected in its windows.

Squinting at the light

Posted by Jackie on April 13, 2009


Did you see what I did there?! 😉

Here’s the Squinty Bridge and the Finnieston Crane. Another old-ish photo (taken in November last year).

I’m away for the Easter weekend but magic pictures will still appear.

This is the Finnieston Crane in the foreground, with (of course) the Squinty Bridge lit up pink in the background. For those of you new(ish) to my blog, the Squinty Bridge isn’t its real name – officially it is called the Clyde Arc, but ever since it opened (a couple of years ago) everybody calls it the Squinty Bridge. Because it’s squinty, obviously 😉
