The town of Caernarfon on the North Wales coast is arguably the epicentre of welsh culture in this part of the country.
Famous for its huge and intact castle, now a UNESCO World Heritage site, Caernarfon also boasts a promenade, on the seaward side of the town walls, leading to the recently developed Victoria Dock, complete with theatre, art gallery, restaurants and small harbour.
The walk around the harbour walls is a real treat, taking in the views and ogling the rather expensive yachts that have made Victoria Dock their home.
To cross the gap in the harbour wall leading to the yacht repair depot the authorities have provided this vivid red mobile footbridge for pedestrian use.
But to me it's a visual masterpiece, not only due to its wonderful colour, but also as it provides a graphic leading line from one side of my image to the other.
A metaphorical as well as physical crossing.
