The Forth Bridge, also known as the Forth Rail Bridge.

This unique steel Cantilever Bridge with three diamond-shaped towers crosses the river Forth at South Queensferry, Scotland. The bridge was designed by Sir John Fowler and Benjamin Baker. The bridge was built by Sir William Arrol.

Constructed started in 1883. The bridge was opened in 1890 at a cost of £2.5m and 57 fatalities among the construction crew (it is now believed that the actual death toll is likely to have been closer to 80).

The bridge is still in use today, carrying the railways to the north from Edinburgh.

Along with the Forth Road Bridge (about half a mile to the west) these two bridges form the main traffic arteries north and south.

    Nice shot Tom. I look forward to your expert advice and local knowledge on Sunday to get me shots like this

  • There will be lots of opportunities from quite a number of vantage points. This bridge is probably one of the most photographed bridges in the world. I live about a mile away from it, but I never get tired of photographing it.

    I like this panorama shot of the bridge with the beautiful blue sky!

  • Thank you Kasia. The bridge is about 1.5 miles in length, so I needed to stitch several shots together to get it all in from that angle ..
