Earlier this year, a new footbridge called Pont y Werin was opened across the River Ely, connecting Penarth and Cardiff Bay and providing a circular walk / cycle path around the bay and the Cardiff Barrage. The banks of the Ely at this point are buried beneath modern apartment developments, and when you throw in the marina too, the area is a microcosm of how Cardiff has changed since the docks closed.
This is a shot of the apartment balconies that overhang the path that runs along the eastern bank of the Ely. In the background you can see the bridge that connects the bay road to Penarth and Barry.
