    Question Anyone got any pics of the Forth Rail Bridge?

    Hi folks,

    I'm after a large image of the bridge taken from the North side for personal use (1 x 2m wall covering)

    I've been looking at old B&W pics but I know some of you guys on here might have some that would be good to use.
    I'd be looking for free use of the image for this one purpose only and if you're local you'd be welcome to come take some shots of it on the wall for your own use once it was up.

    In case you wondered I'm looking at getting it from here http://www.redcliffe.co.uk/point_of_...tt-packard.htm as it's about £40 for that size and will nicely cover a plain wall in our dining room.

    Thanks for any help guys and gals

    Rob

    sounds like an excuse to get the camera out and head down there mate, not really the time of year for it tho

    Violence and Lubrication is the solution to fixing everything, if it still doesn't work, you need more lubrication.

    It's not too bad here actually, still quite mild on most days (mild depends on whether you're used to!)

    That damn scaffolding! I've seen some nice B&Ws then noticed the big white X and thought "eeeew" !

    Not been there with the camera since the work was completed.

    I do have an OK panorama of the rail and road bridges together, it's a good few years old now though and probably not amazing (Canon 350D and 18-55 kit lens... that i didn't know how to use very well).

    Re: Anyone got any pics of the Forth Rail Bridge?

    Only pics i took were at the start of a stag do earlier on this year (we went to that monastery on inchmuir, but there was beer involved, and a comedy club later, so its all ok) and they were with a mobile phone, from North Queensferry. Pretty sure you will have a lot better mate, wouldnt mind taking my camera there for a proper pic tho.
