One of my favourite constructions and photographic subject – The Balcombe Ouse Valley Railway Viaduct.
Built in 1841, the Ouse Valley Viaduct (also called Balcombe Viaduct) over the River Ouse on the London-Brighton Railway Line north of Haywards Heath and south of Balcombe is 1,475 feet (450 m) long.
This is the one place I have been to where looking through the arches of the viaduct gave me horizontal vertigo, really quite a spectacle.
A tricky camera set up. I used some cones I found lying about to get the right perspective. Not easy especially since I had to get above the camera to see through the viewfinder.
