During a break between Atlantic storms in January 2007. I liked the log in the foreground, which had clearly been washed up by the previous week's storm, but when I returned a couple of weeks later somebody had already sawed bit off, presumably for firewood.
The Second Severn Crossing is the M4 motorway bridge from Bristol, England, to Newport, Wales. It is actually the third bridge, and fourth crossing of the Severn Estuary: an 1870s railway bridge between Lydney and Sharpness in Gloucestershire, a few miles upstream, was destroyed by a collision with a barge in the 1960s; an 1870s railway tunnel runs almost directly under this bridge, joining the South Wales Main Line to the Great Western Main Line; and the 1960s Severn Bridge carries the M48 motorway over the estuary a mile upstream.
