Forth Bridge

Gorgeous sunset last night, beautiful and still with lovely oranges in the sky and no midges on this coast. This was at least an hour after sunset and the golden glow just seemed to be getting stronger and stronger. This is a 63s long exposure shot. I do love color ;o)


The Forth Bridge is a cantilever railway bridge over the Firth of Forth in the east of Scotland, to the east of the Forth Road Bridge, and 14 km (9 miles) west of central Edinburgh. It is often called the Forth Rail Bridge or Forth Railway Bridge to distinguish it from the Forth Road Bridge, but should correctly be referred to as the Forth Bridge. The bridge connects Scotland's capital Edinburgh with Fife, and acts as a major artery connecting the north-east and south-east of the country.
