Barrier by ottoberkeley

This is a digital blend of the Thames Barrier, the awe-inspiring 520-metre construction stretching between Woolwich and Silvertown in East London. The barrier was built in the early 1980s and was designed to protect Central London from tidal flooding and river flooding, and comprises 10 steel gates, each weighing more than 3300 tonnes and which, when raised, reach a height equivalent to a five-storey building.

The image was taken over the course of an hour and a half, and incorporates elements from eight-, ten- and twelve-minute exposures, blending the warm late-afternoon sunshine striking the gates, the calm early-evening sky overhead, and the rich blue-hour hue that was reflected in the construction’s steel.
