It started as a 366 – now a regular Photoblog- just for the love of taking photos and sharing them.
That’s great architecture! In today’s images, the arches look even higher!
18 metres (or 60 feet) Mimo !!
Love the contrast between the organic and the structure.
I love that too Elena..
I’m tempted to ask ‘How many bricks?’!! More seriously, the details are so crisp its possible to count them! It’s an incredible structure, and the contrast with the horses is a delightful touch.
Thanks Louis… here’s some details for you ” The viaduct is constructed from some 30,000,000 bricks, all manufactured on site, with Derbyshire Gritstone springers, string courses and coping. As well as the bricks, construction required some 20,000 cubic yards of concrete, 19,000 cubic yards of stone, 37,543 cubic yards of lime mortar, and 5,876 cubic yards of cement.”
That just serves me right for asking!! Game, set and match to you I think Helen!
haha.. Oh do keep asking… I have been reading a lot about this Viaduct. I find it fascinating..
Lovely. The horses provide a very attractive sense of scale.
They do don’t they Rachael. They really show just how enormous the structure is..
Wow! What an amazing structure!
Lovely photos, as well, Helen.
Thanks F&B.. it is a truly amazing structure that dominates the landscape.
That first shot is a smasher…….I’m having a bit of a gee gee day myself.
Thanks Stuart.. I was very pleased with the horses for putting themselves in just the right spot!
I agree with Stuart…great shot and could you ask for a more impressive frame?! I think not!
Thanks Scilla… These were the same horses from the landscape shot… by the time I’d got down to the road, turned and come back to park near the arches the horses had kindly made their way there too!
Wonderful viaduct series, Helen. They really show the strength and scale of the structure and I especially love these with the horses!
Thanks Karen.. glad to have you back commenting 🙂 There are more viaduct ones to come but I thought I’d give everyone a break from them !
Brilliant! Top image is esp. good!
Lucky to have horses and floods 🙂
Nice views beyond too … “through the arch window”. 😀
Haha very good Sallyann 🙂
