Punting under the Bridge of Sighs

Probably one of the most famous landmarks in Cambridge is The Bridge of Sighs, built in 1831, and part of St John's College. Named after the the bridge of the same name in Venice (b.1602) - though architectually they share little in common.

What a pleasing composition, so nicely framed by the bridge up top. Lovely tones too (as usual).
