England's Big Picture
I was thrilled to receive an email today telling me one of my photos had been chosen by BBC News for their England's Big Picture gallery. You can check out the page here http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-41227408
The photo was one I included in my blog post yesterday about the pleasures of Autumn days. This suspension footbridge holds many memories for me - I've wheeled three young babies and toddlers across this in pushchairs over the years to paddle in the beck or to play pooh sticks in the little hamlet of Menethorpe. More recently it's me and the pooch using it for one of our walks.
The bridge itself is a beautiful and eye-catching piece of Victorian ironwork. It was constructed in 1885 and links the North Riding of Yorkshire to the East Riding of Menethorpe. It also takes you onto the Centenary Way which runs across the Howardian Hills and Yorkshire Wolds via Castle Howard and Wharram Percy.
If you enjoy photography why not submit a photo to the England's Big Picture gallery by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or posting it on Facebook or Twitter @BBCEngland. I use Instagram with the hashtag #englandsbigpicture. Happy snapping!
