    The sun actually came out down here in Brighton for the first time in weeks today. Pondering how to spend my lunch hour I remembered that this impressive structure was only about 10 minutes away so I jumped in the car to get a few shots.

    On closer inspection of the viaduct I wasn't quite expecting to find such immense engineering which completely took my breath away. Unfortunately the images don't quite capture the sheer scale of the structure and its 37 one hundred feet high arches.

    All taken with the GF1 + 14-45mm

    Nice set. I think the last two come closest to expressing the enormity of the whole structure, but No 1 is really dynamic. :smile:
