Just to lead on from Choogsters photo of the bridge, here is one i took last year, from North Queensferry, it was one of them moments, i was sat in the house (bridge is about 8 miles as the crow flies away), and i could see the water was flat calm aboout 10pm, so i decided, sod it, and headed through with camera, im so glad i did now, the train passing over was purely coincidence (well not really it is a rail bridge lol.).

Must admit, I agree with Barry to some extent. As an engineer, I can appreciate both structures, but there is a magic associated with the rail bridge that no other bridge can match.

What about IKB's Saltash bridge Dennis?, don't have a shot to hand I'll have a look for one.

Yes, Tony. Have just had a google search for images of Saltash Bridge. Very impressive, and there seem to me to be some similarities betweenthe Saltash and Forth bridges. Based purely on the photographic images, I still think the Forth has the edge though.

Photographing the Saltash bridge is very difficult as someone, no doubt in a pinstripe suit, decided to build the rather nondescript road brige very close to the rail bridge. The best shots are those taken before the road bridge was built when one had to go into Plymouth and cross the Taymar on the ferry.
Of the road bridges I think the Humber is the most photogenic.

I also live pretty close to the Forth Rail Bridge.

It is almost impossible to take an original photo of this beautiful bridge now as it has been snapped so much.

How about this one ?

A tight, abstract view at night.

Great shot, and great to not see scaffolding around it, you can even see the bothy at track level, this is where we used to sit from 8.30 till 10.30 when the wind was too high, if still like this at 10.30 we were sent home with a full days pay, wind limit was 30mph which as locals will know, is a low end wind that we tend to get everyday of the year up here.

Great photo though.
