Low Arch High Arches

By woolybill1
At the Torrs Riverside Park, New Mills, High Peak, Derbyshire. A tall viaduct (the B6101) and a low stone bridge cross a basin of the river Goyt. Both crossings are at different angles and neither faces square on to the camera. On the very right is a mini hydro-electric plant with a large archimedean screw working out of sight; it supplies the electricity. needs of 70 homes.

If the measure of a good shot can be (in some way) gauged by how long it takes to take in all the detail, then this ticks the boxes. Excellent composition!

Fascinating. But for your description I'd have thought the bridge was part of the viaduct.

Great photo, Bill. Shows how the bridges (especially the small one) have blended into the natural landscape over the years. Lots of interest without being too busy. obviously a fascinating and photogenic location.

90 left from camera offers a 5-mile circular walk that passes beneath another stone bridge (a double-decker), climbs up to the Peak Forest canal beside which you walk for a mile or so, drops gently to a pleasant nature reserve before returning to New Mills by way of the airy Millennium Walkway.

A place to play with the geometry... I look forward to more shots that are as descriptive and involving!

On first viewing, a bridge on top of an existing bridge, until I read your notes. It shows how the camera can play tricks on your senses! Good capture, with lovely mono processing, top class!
