Location County Country
Tay Bridge Dundee Scotland

DescriptionMagnificent 2.75 mile long railbridge crossing the Firth of Tay.
What to ShootShoot the beautiful, sinuous curves and repeating patterns of the piers of this gorgeous bridge.
What to TakeTake some ND and graduated filters to control contrast and to allow long exposures which look particularly good here.
ParkingThere are those that pull off the dual-carriageway and park on the amply wide footpath... but we wouldn't condone such behaviour.
Best TimesMakes great pictures at sunrise and sunset.
