Description

Over The Top, Chepstow.

Hoggin’ the Bridge started in the year 2000 when Rex Forster, organised a sponsored walk for the Spencer Dayman Trust finishing on the Severn Bridge. Mr Forster asked for a few Harley Davidson motorbikes to escort the walkers across the finish line - but soon thought, “How many Harleys can we get on this bridge?” This year some 2000 bikes of all makes crossed the M48 Severn bridge from Aust Services, England to finish in Chepstow, Wales. The motorcycles on the top of the bridge (the center) are 1.4 miles from my camera, thus giving a very foreshortened view.

The compressed perspective is very effective and enhanced by the line of motorcyclists. Well taken.

A very original shot, refreshingly different. Good use of the technical capabilities of the very good lens you must be using, and capturing the moment just right.
