That's such a good shot of the bridge...one of the best I've seen. It looks like the barge could have gone underneath without the bridge opening up, though. No?

@ Jacob - You are right, the caption was misleading. The bridge opened for the other barge, a Thames sailing barge, actually under the bridge and partially covered by the static barge.

A sailing barge! And what a fantastic bridge too.
A great shot.

I hardly ever saw it open and I lived there for 7 years.

Great shot! Just like a postcard. I've never actually seen Tower Bridge open IRL. If I do, I hope I'll have my camera with me :-)
