Photographer's Note

The Forth Road Bridge is a long span suspension bridge over the Firth of Forth between South Queensferry, located to the west of Edinburgh, and North Queensferry in Fife. The bridge and its approach viaducts, which carry a two lane dual carriageway plus cycle paths and footpaths, are 2,517 metres long. The suspension bridge itself is 1,822 metres long, making it the second longest single span suspension bridge in the UK.

I`ve heard its construction costed about 11.5m pounds, and when it was completed in 1964 (it was officially opened on 4 September) it was the longest bridge of its kind outside the United States of America.

By the way, here is an useful information for visitors: a toll must be paid to cross the bridge in the northbound direction. Southbound travel is free, as is travel in both directions by cyclists and pedestrians.

The sky was unbeliveble that day. I took a several shots that evening, 2 another are already posted to my gallery.

I wanted to show the motion of the clouds so I set 30s and used a tripod. This exposure gave me a really interesting effect. Hope you like it!
