The Forth Bridges – floodlit

Forth Bridge

Back to our October 2016 cruise and I woke up in the dark, realising that our ship Black Watch must have entered the Firth of Forth because there was almost no movement at all and very little engine noise.

I shot out of bed and luckily managed to locate the camera in the dark, Jack was still out for the count. The two photos above are of the Forth Bridge which is for trains only. It’s the one on my header.

I was just in time to take these photos of the bridges as we went under them, I took lots but most of them didn’t come out.

These ones are quite atmospheric though, certainly if you know what you’re looking at anyway.

The new road bridge is still under construction, but it’s not far off being finished.

If you want to see more photos under construction have a look here.

    • Sandra,
      We’ve just booked up a week in Orkney in June but before that we’ll be in Belgium and Holland visiting family – it’s a hard life this retirement lark!

  1. Very evocative photos: I’m sure they’ll reinforce for you some special memories of time and place, sight and sound, and smell of mist, salt air and ship.
