The engineers of the Forth bridge demonstrate the principles of the cantilever construction by sitting on kitchen chairs. Sir John Fowler and Sir Benjamin Baker with their arms stretched out support Kaichi Watanabe sitting on a seat in the air between them. 1887.
Queensferry Calm by Rod Goodwin Via Flickr: Apologies- I know I have posted a similar shot a few weeks back, but this was another day. Funnily I managed both a sunset and sunrise at the same spot within weeks.
The water was calm but not quite enough to get away with a short exposure and wasn’t using a grad filter just the B&W ten stop.
This is my first dawn shot for probably a year and I found it weird having to shoot with conditions brightening rather than darkening so took me a while to get into that.
Had a good shot of the bridge including the town until I spotted that a post was obscuring the bridge partially when I downloaded the file..
Drove through from the West to make dawn at the bridges so it was an early start even with the later sunrise now.
Thanks for all the comments on the last shot.
