Today I enjoyed making wet-plate collodion images of Bradford upon Avon, around the Bridge with its unusual lock-up. The river was flowing well and gave good opportunity to capture its movement. The low morning light was illuminating the underside of the bridge's arches and that comes out well on the plates.

Camera: Thornton Pickard Imperial - full plate. I was using 5x7" plates and collodion from Jarvis Photography
