From Wikipedia.

'Ribblehead Viaduct in North Yorkshire is one of the longest, highest and most famous viaducts on the Settle-Carlisle Railway, a railway line passing through some spectacular British scenery. Ribblehead railway station is located just to the south of the viaduct.

The first stone was laid on 12 October 1870 and the last in 1874. It is 104 feet (32 m) high and spans 440 yards (402 m). It is made up of 24 arches. It is located at the foot of the mountain of Whernside.

About two thousand Navvies building the viaduct established shanty towns on the moors, named after victories of the Crimean War, sarcastically for posh districts of London, and Biblical names. There were smallpox epidemics and deaths from industrial accidents; the churchyard at Chapel-le-Dale had to be extended'.

Lovely perspective, Stephen! Love the exposure and details. TFS,
Freddie :)

It's for railways! Impressive! I like the result of that loong line full of icon. We could practically said it's an invader of the natural landscape! Impressive piece from that angle!

Hi Stephen!

Beautiful place. Nice perspective.

Hello Stephen,
I love the arches, the shadows, and the swirls in the sky. Even from the thumbnail version, it is a masterful creation.
All the best,

Nice POV! I like the movement of the clouds in the sky that goes in the same direction or should I say in the same view angle than the viaduct! This is extremely well composed! Bravo!

Nice POV, good colours.

I like the way the arches start off big and the small towards the right side.


Hello Stephen,
This is a very impressive shot! I love how the perspective works on the viaduct diminishing it to vertually nothing! Lovely diagonal perspective, and great use of light!
Kind regards,
bev :-)

Hola amigo,

monumento maravilloso,

Great photo! Nothing to comment...

Hi Stephen,
I've heard so much about this viaduct from programmes on the TV and in books thatI've read so I have seen quite a lot of images of it. Your POV is very different and offers a more artistic and refreshing interpretation.
Best wishes,

Perspective in it's glory. So dynamic.
You really captured the moment.
Well Done.

well, well, well, well....and well :)))
