This photo had the clarity and vibrance settings increased in Lightroom 5. :wink:

Ha ha, and a steam train would have been awesome too. [WINKING FACE]

I did reverse to hide the gate but I did not like the result, as the roof line was the same height as the hedge. [THUMBS UP SIGN]

Where's your pickie please! [WINKING FACE]

Cracking photo Semerka

Yep your right, a nice Black 5 puffing over the viaduct would have been great!

Keep well

Definitely-a 'steam special' in full flow would look majestic. :)

Thats a fair comment and a fine shot none the less. :wink:

Still on the case for that suitable location.. :chin:

I was told about this viaduct by a friend and then I went on Google Earth to check the surroundings.

Perhaps Google Earth could be helpful in finding locations for this month competition? I originally had a road tunnel under a railway in mind, that I found on a map.

Changed the deadline to 16th Feb, as it's a Sunday and makes more sense, I suppose. :)

Is there the castle's draw bridge in the photo? :)
This month theme is either a bridge, a tunnel, a viaduct, an archway and such. :wink:
