Royal Border Bridge.

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.
