A colourful, sharp and well composed image. Too high tech for me though as I am not sure what I am looking at. Is this something like the Thames Barrier?

Like Chris, I think this is a bright and colourful image. Is it a recent image, Steve? We don't seem to have had much sun recently. I, too, was puzzled by what I was looking at but a quick trawl of Google images gave me this which helped a lot; now I can understand it to be three lifting bridges; the three big beams across the top being counterbalances. I understand that the scheme cost around £400 million; I should think £390 million must have gone on warning signs, traffic lights and bi-lingual signs

It was taken over the week end between the storms , the image has had its vibrancy increased by a pre-set function in Darktable which I am still experimenting with and getting my head around . its was also taken with my walk-around lens which is not the best of my optics, but I am pleased with the overall result.

And I thort the clue was in the title
What a bewildering array of signs and barriers, talk about over kill
They look like big rollers on pedestal bearings not counterbalances, but never mind a pin sharp shot showing all we need to see, well done Steve.

I can't add to what the guys have already said Steve, a cracking record shot of a bewildering array of, well, everything really!

Thanks to Alan for the extra info, still lots of detail even if this lens in not the favorite, but a pretty handy lens with that sort of range I should think Steve.

I can only agree with the other comments Steve, bright, colourful, good detail and lots of interest, well done.
