Castlefields. by Lilian Marshall

3 railway viaducts span the Bridgewater Canal at Castlefields , Deansgate in Manchester. 1} The Cornbrook Viaduct used by the Metro link , 2} Manchester South Junction & Altringham Viaduct ( MJS and A ) with it’s fantastic brick arches reported to have taken 50,000 000 bricks to build and 3} the now disused Great Northern Viaduct. Lumix DMC-TZ18.

progressed from holiday snaps to being serious about it just 3 years ago.I keep a compact camera in my handbag at all times .It is more convenient, an SLR is to heavy and complicated for me. I just like to point and shoot. I do enhance my images slightly with pseudo HDR on a single image. Now I have a hobby and a passion.

    Playing ‘catch up’ (I’ve still got a sick computer) Great work !

  • Thank you Kelvin. Sorry your computer is sick. I had a phone call today from some one telling me my computer was sick . I said no it wasn’t and if it was my daughter would fix it for me . No no he said I can do it for you here and now . Luckily I knew it was a scam He said he was from Microsoft. Easy to believe them isn’t it.
