Underneath The Arches...

Two very different images today, but on the same theme - arches. One image was taken with a 'proper' Nikon camera, and the other with an iPhone. Can you tell which is which?

The first was taken in Wetherby, North Yorkshire, and shows the weir on the River Wharfe through one of the six arches of the road bridge that crosses the river. The bright sunlight, bursting through the rain clouds, illuminated the water running over the weir, and gave just enough light to brighten the arch and reveal some detail of the 17th century brickwork.

The second image was taken in London. These far grander arches (well, this is London, after all!), are at the rear of what was originally the Shell-Mex building, located at 80, Strand. Adjacent to this arched walkway are the Victoria Embankment Gardens, and the clock at the top of the building - famed for being the largest clock in London - overlooks the gardens, the Thames and the South Bank, and can be seen for many a mile.
