BRIDGE. (22/02/13)

We walked the other way again this morning. It was barely light but the sky was very unusual. I didn’t bother with the camera and birds today……..I like to try and preserve a little dignity. There were lots of curlew, redshanks and sandpiper around but around is a relative term….a couple of hundred yards around._V0G5334_edited-1  This is the rail bridge across the estuary.

_V0G5331_edited-1_V0G5329_edited-1They have kindly bolted a footbridge to the side of it………saves swimming across. The estuary can be forded at low water.

_V0G5333_edited-1    It’s a really bonny bridge.

ravpan22213  Great sky. This is pretty big and will enlarge with a click.

_V0G5318_edited-1  One from playtime last night………I really ought to make the effort to get out more……..For those that haven’t seen it before this is the Moon.

Have a great weekend.

  2. I'm actually not to sure I would like to be on that bridge when a train comes by, unless it goes slowly across of course, though given current temps' it has to be better the fording the river. It looks an amazing place. Love the sky and cloud formations on the image above the moon

    1. They are rail cars that use this bridge Douglas.
      It's an area well worth a visit RSPB Leighton Moss is twenty miles south. The World Owl Centre is here....I'll go next week. The estuary, though good for waders is a bit open and they can see you coming.

  3. That's a fine looking bridge Adrian.

    Moon pictures I can take or leave, but that's not bad. I think they always look better when they ain't full. Gibbon, or something, isn't it?

    1. Keith, it's a waxing gibbous moon. I prefer gibbon but then I like monkeying around.

  7. I like your new header. It would give me the creeps if a train was on the bridge the same time as me!

    1. Red. Trains aren't a problem they just rumble past slowly. The station is not far from the end of the bridge.

  9. Firstly must to say that I like the new blog header. The bridge is really quite lovely, and built in a time when how it looked mattered. Did you use Bertha for the moon picture?

    1. Thanks Gary.
      Bertha with a 2x teleconverter or extender as Canon call them. Mirror locked up and cable release. IS off. The tripod was tensioned with a dog mooring screw as it was a bit breezy.

    1. Trevor the moon moves fast but not as fast as the birds. Bertha works fine for the moon.

    1. Maria, the moon is fine but I'll try exposure blending it next time as I don't like the clipped background.

  12. Wonderful moon photo - I do love the moon! I'm not so sure that I would describe the bridge as 'bonny' though.

    1. I will try and get the moon at a quarter full I want to see the sea of tranquillity on it's horizon.
      The bridge....I will admit is a bit thin to be Bonny but beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
