Also known as the "Bridge Over The Atlantic" designed by Thomas Telford and built between 1792 and 1793 by engineer Robert Mylne, still in use today. Dismal weather, heavy persistent rain, mist, very dull. The IS has really helped (hand-held at 1/10th sec braced against a tree).

I like it

I like the effect of the bad weather and the wetness of the stone. A nice composition.

Thanks Mark, I've had another look at this one and have decided it needs to be darker. The watery mistiness is about as I remember it but the foreground is too light - I will post a revised version, see what you think!
