Three Centuries of Engineering Innovation

October 19, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

You will recall that a few weeks back the new Queensferry Crossing opened, bridging the Firth of Forth with a new road bridge to replace the 1964 bridge. I took quite a few shots of all three Forth bridges, i.e. the 1890 Forth Bridge (rail), the 1964 Forth Road Bridge and the 2017 Queensferry Crossing - three bridges spanning three centuries of engineering innovation. It seemed appropriate to enter one of these into an international open photography competition run by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), particularly as I have been a member of the institution since around 1980 when I was a student of engineering.

Well the IET like my photograph featuring all three Forth bridges. It didn't win but was Highly Commended and will be displayed in the IET's Global Engineering Hub in Savoy Place, London for one year.
