An alternative view of the Forth Rail Bridge. I like the effect of the floodlighting shining from the distance, the reflections on the firth, and the stars. I seem to have captured a constellation : The Plough/Big Dipper!

This is stunning! The lights intrigue me... I'm interested to know if this has been adapted at all to 1, get the affect with the light throwing itself into the sky in the background and 2, to get it so red.

Excellent image!

The original image was as red, and the light effect was there in the original too! I'll see if I can work out how to upload the original, uncropped version to show this.

I reckon I'm going to have to get there at night next time I'm up north - which won't be until next year :-(

My daytime shots of both bridges are very mediocre!

Super shot - and brave getting in that close to the bridge (most want to get the metalwork on show).

Great 1st upload - now you have something to live up to.

Ooh nice picture babe. I love the stars and the light coming off the bridge! Glad you have finally uploaded a picture and hope you get as obsessed as me now, then you won't get so bored waiting for me!

i'm just sitting and grinning at this, it's fantastic. You've caught the plough really well, with no trailing at all. What shutter speed was this? I'm assuming that it was quite a lengthy one, given the amount of light in the photo.

Hmm I can't remember to be honest! It might have been a minute, or even two.

It's the fact that you've got no trails, it makes for such a strong shot. I would have expected them at this length of time.

To have captured The Plough in this way is phenomenal work, whether by accident or not. Something I could never do here in London because there is just too much light pollution. I'd love to now your exposure time. Top class.
