"Photographing the Forth Bridge"

...is a preferable task to "Painting the Forth Bridge"! And I enjoyed doing this from the Orocco Pier at South Queensferry. Some interesting facts from Wikipedia :- The bridge was begun in 1883, took 7 years to complete, cost the lives of 98 men and nearly 58,000 tonnes (128,000,000 lb) of metal and used 10 times as much metal as the Eiffel Tower. It was deliberately chosen to look strong, due to the collapse 4 years earlier of the first Tay Bridge.
