Crossing the Irwell at Brooksbottoms

This was my very last picture of the day and a complete grab shot, I wasn't expecting it at all! After my walk and I had been for a pint, the sun had come out and it was quite bright. I decided I hadn't done with the camera so thought I would drive to Summerseat as I had passed through it earlier on my walk and quite liked the area. As it happened I got a bit mixed up and ended up here at Brooksbottoms which is only a stone's throw away anyway.

I was about to reach my destination when I saw all these photographers lined up and the bridge, so knew there would be a train due. I had to act fast, dumped the car up a back alley just beyond the bridge on the left, ran across the road and saw the train approaching the bridge. I managed to rattle off a few more frames, this one being the best I think.

Taken on a Nikon D200.
