The Tay Rail Bridge crosses the Firth of Tay, connecting the city of Dundee to the Kingdom of Fife in Scotland. This is the second bridge since the first one collapsed in 1879, sending a train into the firth killing 75 passengers.

The bridge has been well photographed but driving past at the weekend I decided it was time for me to have a go:

1 exposure for the bridge and another for the sky blended together in Photoshop then converted to monochrome in Lightroom.

Thanks Amin, the water is not frozen but the neutral density filter gave me a shutter speed long enough to partly smooth out the waves.

Very very nice image indeed.

Makes me want to make pilgrimage back to the place of my birth and shoot the Tyne Bridge and friends for probably the trillionth time in their life. : ))))

Love your rail bridge photo!

Here's my recent Tay road bridge photo. I took loads, but my favourite is the one where the autofocus chose to focus on the handrail - arguably the most boring part of the shot :roll eyes: - but strangely pleasing...

Hope you like :smile:

Alan - really nice shot. You picked the correct side/angle to shoot from, therefore hiding all the scaffolding that seems to be a permanent fixture on it these days.... :rolleyes:

Ha ha!! Who'd have thought that even on a relatively specialised international forum/community there'd be a wee cluster of Taysiders!!! Splendid

Very good pics of the Tay Bridges, but lets not forget about their bigger, older, sister down the road.

Taken with an LC1 (are they allowed in here?) and converted to B&W in Lightroom.
