For those who live in South Yorkshire, the Conisbrough Viaduct offers plenty of photographic potential as well as a spot to soak up a view and enjoy a pleasant walk through the countryside. 

The structure is rather magnificent with its 21 arches and 150-foot lattice iron girder which span the river below. It's 1527 feet in length and stands over 100 feet from the ground in the centre. From the top, you get panoramic views of the surrounding areas while stepping further back from the huge structure will give you ample opportunity to capture the viaduct in its surroundings. The fields around the viaduct also give photographers the chance to capture macro images of wildflowers in summer and there's also graffiti around that can make an interesting photographic project.

Those taking their camera with them on their visit should fit a decent zoom lens to the front of their camera so they can take full advantage of all of the photographic opportunities this area has to offer. Rick, once again, packed the Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD MACRO in his kit bag which he used to capture the shots shown in this blog post.

If you enjoy cycling, the viaduct is actually on the National Cycle Network and it's also part of the Trans Pennine Trail so you can even plan a stop there on a longer photo walk should you enjoy stretching your legs a little further. The viaduct can be accessed all year and there are no fees to pay to explore it which is always a bonus. Not too far away there's also Conisbrough Castle - an 11th-century limestone keep that's well worth a visit with your camera. In fact, several of our past blogs have been about exploring this historical structure.
