Engine Lonning Bridge

These pinhole photos were taken in Carlisle at Engine Lonning which used to be a rail yard. The bridge was built to carry the Carlisle to Edinburgh line and closed in 1964. I parked at the local sports centre and walked for a mile or so along the river bank. Strong sunlight and racing clouds made for good light which has helped with the contrast.

I used a Zero Image 612 pinhole camera which I feel is the right format for this bridge. Will be returning with a 6×6 pinhole camera to see if the images can do justice to this location in square format. In order to try a third approach I will lug along my DSLR and see how it all turns out!
