Tamar Sunset

By Johno450    
The two Tamar Bridges spaning the River Tamar between Devon and Cornwall.

In the foreground is the Royal Albert Bridge (rail) built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel which opened in 1859.

Behind is the Tamar Suspension Bridge (vehicles and pedestrians) which opened in 1961 crossing the River Tamar between Plymouth and Saltash.

Nice colour and light. I remember when cars used to have to use a ferry to cross the river here. There long queues back then. I can't imagine what it would be like today without a bridge

Interesting pov with views through the bridge.
