I must admit to always having been fascinated by bridges, whether it was passing over them or shooting under them they are always so impressive! When it comes to impressive few can compare with this one, the Forth Bridge in Scotland! In its day it was an engineering wonder and today, more than a century later, it remains a truly remarkable sight! Railway engineer Hargrave managed to capture an excellent view of the bridge in this image!
