Kylesku Bridge - A894 - Being in the north west of Scotland, a diversion to the Kylesku Bridge was called for.

On The A82

This is a more cropped version of my entry last month. I've now cropped off the rear view mirror at the top and the tax disc at the bottom to make for a less distracting picture. This was my first visit to the Scottish Highlands and I was glad to be a passenger so that I could capture stunning vistas such as this one.

Driving Through The Snow...

Also from the M6 Birthday weekend earlier in December. This isn't the M6 though, rather a nice snowy road we explored that crisscrossed the motorway a few times. We were so blessed with this gorgeous crisp weather which always makes for a nice photo.

I like the way the curve of the bridge is in sympathy with the curves in its environment.
