Forth Rail Bridge

By YorkshireSam
I visited this location with the intention of capturing it at sundown just as the bridge was lit and with some ambient light still remaining in the sky. Having waited until 9.15 the bridge still wasn't lit and the sky was almost black so I left. I went via the road bridge and as I reached halfway along the lights came on much to my annoyance, had the sky not been so dark I would have gone back but instead (for now) I'll just have to settle for these daylight versions.

Can be seen extremely large here ( use the zoom slider) :- Version one and Version two

Seldom does one see the Bridge in context with either of the villages that lie at each end: a very original capture then in that context and well suited to the panoramic format, Sam.

A different view of this from the usual. I know exactly how you feel re the lights... been there many times down on the Thames!!

Great image
Two outstanding photographs, which show that no matter how many times some iconic scene has been photographed, someone can come along and do a different and better interpretation. With the village,the boats,the train and even a rainbow included, I think your panoramic V1 is best. Chris

Thank you all for the kind words and votes which make up for my disappointment at not getting the shot I went for.

Ronnie, Chris and Dave wherever possible I try to be original and put my own stamp on the things I capture so your comments in particular have mre grinning from ear to ear.

kind regards to all, Sam :o)
