Strongest Archways ever built. Looks great in B&W. Cheers to you Jim.

Wow...love this one...great angle and gives a wonderful impression of age and strength ;)

See ya from Sandy ;)

This is a MUST for the XXL-look. Very very strong!!! I like the stunning composition of the bridge in contrast to the small living houses in the under right corner. So it is not only a creep-show just for Jeeps... (I hope, I understood your title correctly!)

It's a marvellous photograph, anyway! I saved it into my favourits.

Warm regards to you Jim!

Hi Jim,

These 2 shots are really wonderful! I gather from the map it's disused now, what a imposing masterpiece for the town to still have. It's great to follow the map to see the Old station near white bridge road. This is the old line that went up to sandsend & along the coast! From reading about this it was dramatic trip up the beautiful coast through tunnels & viaducts!! Thanks for posting Jim! As always i hope your well!

Warmest regards from Dublin h

I am enthralled by all your lovely compliments and kind appraisals. There are some subjects that seem to benefit from the monochrome treatment more than others and multi arch bridges are one of them!!

a3a35919--thanks for your kind remarks Danny, I often wonder if any brick layer could build something like this in this modern age!! Not bad for 1845 was it!!

scml--I agree with you Sandy, these graceful viaducts were a triumph in design and functionality ;>)

KKT--I am honoured by your generous appraisal Karl and it is most encouraging to have ones work recognised by some one as talented as your self ;>)

Tombstone65--As always, I am delighted to see you here Freddy, thank you so much for your amusing comment ;>)

2c Greetings Hugh, it was your incredible B+W images that inspired me to use monochrome for subjects like this viaduct!! I took your advice and played around with the settings to fine tune my photos, a most enjoyable experience!!

As yet, I have much to learn and if any of my shots are half as good as yours, then I shall be extremely happy ;>)

Kind regards to each of you ;>)

Marching straight into Whitby. Mountain high or river deep, nothing can withstand these determined arches.

Thanks once again 2c..you have done your homework I see!! This closure ended more than a century of rail travel on what was, arguably, one of Britain's most beautiful lines

This line has been closed since the 1950's! ... Beeching's axe fell after this..Unfortunately, the original bridges, all built to the same design ie box girder spans on cast iron columns, were further up the line at Upgang, Raithwaite, the two at Sandsend and another near Staithes, and were found to be seriously corroded and declared unsafe.. To replace them was too costly so the the end of the line came prematurely!

Hi Rafal-- there are 5 more arches but I have no fish-eye lens ;>))

Philippe Meisburger,'''creepy yes..my feelings exactly!!

Hello **must-K...thank you Mustafa for your affirmation and kind appraisal ;>)

Greetings Claus...as always it is a pleasure to read your interesting feedback!! I like your description determined arches--I agree!! the harsh monochrome effect, I feel, gives the structure power and dominance... :>)

I'm grateful for your visit and feedback guys !!

Best wishes

Jim
