Railway Bridge

This bridge is on the High Peak trail, between Black Rocks and Middleton Top. The path running under it used to be a railway, and there's a restored steam engine which was used to pull trains filled with coal up the Middleton incline... apparently.

It was getting dark when I took this photo, so I stuck the camera on a fence post and went for a fairly long exposure. I think it was around half a second. Subsequent playing in Photoshop lightened and enhanced it a bit more, then I cropped it to focus more on the bridge, and less on the fence, although I do like how the fence now leads the eye towards the bridge. Maybe fence posts aren't so bad after all!
