Across The Forth

You may think that this image of the Firth of Forth was captured at sunset. However, it was actually taken just before noon and is looking due south from the Fife village of Pittenweem towards East Lothian in the distance.

It’s all a matter, when shooting into the sun, of keeping the sun itself out of the image.

I think it certainly fits the brief for this week’s ‘Fun Foto’ theme of ‘water, water everywhere’.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Build

What you see here is one of the towers of the new Queensferry Crossing road bridge across the Firth of Forth just outside Edinburgh, while it was under construction. That should qualify for Frank’s theme of ‘Build’ for this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge.

Considering that this photograph was taken with a mobile phone through the window of a car travelling at 50 mph – over the old road bridge – I don’t think it’s too bad.

This is what the finished article looks like; it’s stunning:
