Royal Border Bridge.

    Newer Older

    I finally got to this spot on Friday night on my way home from visiting the Duddo Five Stones.

    When I finish work in the evenings I drive past this bridge and it never ceases to look amazing, especially with it's lights that change to all sorts of colours.

    I parked in Berwick-Upon-Tweed and I knew exactly where to go and luckily had a torch on me as there were a few dark places to negotiate on the way..

    I got down to the Riverside and saw how calm the River was, I literally said "wow" and was really pleased to get these conditions..

    I set up and took a few test shots as you do, but I wanted to wait and see if a train went over, and eventually one came and I am rather pleased at the result.

    Now I know the image is a bit grainy, but I HAD to have a high ISO and wide aperture, because if the exposure is too long, the lights turn out white which can look unpleasing to the eye..

    A bit of History on the Bridge:

    Thanks for looking.

      Stunning shot Jonathan, I didn't know what it was when I first saw the thumbnail, looked very abstract.

      Fantastic shot, from the thumbnail i thought it was some sort of fantastically illuminated guitar. Definitely requires a visit next time im down south.

      Well captured, a good choice of using a higher ISO for the coloured lighting. The train crossing the bridge is an excellent finishing touch.
