Balcombe Viaduct Pierced Piers North - HDR by 

How Many Arches, How Many Bricks ???? Hmmmm !

A 3 shot HDR, tripod mounted, Processed in Photomatix Pro, and CS3

Fuji 100Fs

Built in 1841, the Ouse Valley Viaduct (also called Balcombe Viaduct) over the River Ouse on the London-Brighton Railway Line north of Haywards Heath and south of Balcombe is 1,475 feet (450 m) long, 96 feet (29 m) high.

It was designed by engineer John Urpeth Rastrick in association with the architect of the London to Brighton railway, David Mocatta. Construction completed 1842. The bricks needed for its construction travelled up the Ouse River (via Newhaven and Lewes) from Holland. It was restored in 1996. The structure is a Grade II listed building.

The viaduct is still used, with around 110 trains a day passing over it on the Brighton Main Line.

Ever since a child, aviation has been a keen interest of mine, with warbirds being my favourite. Since joining Redbubble, I have become a keen follower of HDR work, which I am concerntrating on at the moment.
