Water under the bridge

Filed under: bridges, photos, reflections, trees — Tags: , , , — EdinburghEye @ 8:04 am

An old railway bridge in Edinburgh. The footpath under the bridge has been flooded due to heavy rain. The logs are intended to allow people to carefully traverse the flood dryshod. The photograph was taken at the beginning of July 2007.

I took this photo here. It’s available on Redbubble: Water under the bridge.

Sandport Bridge: A flurry of wings

Filed under: birds, bridges, photos — Tags: , , , , — EdinburghEye @ 8:19 am

Seagulls and pigeons, competing over some scraps, rise suddenly into the air as the photographer approaches. This picture was taken in January on the path beside the Water of Leith as it approaches Sandport Bridge: the houses by the Shore are seen beyond the rising birds.

I took this photo here. It’s available on Redbubble: A flurry of wings.

Bridge of Shadows

Filed under: bridges, photos — Tags: , , , — EdinburghEye @ 12:09 am

This photo was taken here. It’s on Redbubble: Bridge of Shadows.

This old bridge of iron and wood in Leith links Tower Place to Rennie’s Isle, running parallel to the modern road bridge Ocean Drive. I love this bridge, especially the way it looks when you stand at the Tower Place end and look across with the shadows falling on the old grey wood.

Last time I walked down this way, the bridge was closed to foot traffic.
