Bridge and Bunting by Tom Gomez

An Historic Scotland Category A Listed Bridge

A glimpse of the River Forth and the South span of the Forth Bridge from the West Terrace looking through one of the gaps in the buldings on the High Street in South Queensferry, Scotland.

South Queensferry lies on the south shore of the Firth of Forth, 10 miles (16 km) west of Edinburgh. It has been an important crossing at least since 1071 when Malcolm III granted free passage at the ‘Queens Ferry’ for pilgrims on their way to St Andrews. A ferry service operated until 1964, the year the Forth Road Bridge was opened.

The Forth Bridge is an Historic Scotland Category A Listed structure. HB Number 40370.

    Such a magnificent structure, isn’t it? You can’t help but point the camera at it :-) Lovely glimpse of the bridge through the buildings – very typical of South Queensferry.

  • So true Kevin and it looks great without all the plastic sheering …

    Excellent shot mate with great composition. Sorry I am not so active on Red Bubble this past few weeks. Just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the week with one thing and another after work.

  • Believe me, I know the feeling my friend. Glad you like the shot …
