I go through this tunnel every day on the way to work, when I’m not driving I usually try and take some pictures. Invariably they turn out awful as there is no light and the road is quite bumpy. This is one of the few that turned out reasonably successful.



  • I like this, and I’m not sure how to put this but what this shot does (for me at least) is bring the brickwork to life. Many of the old tunnels and bridges in the UK have a real character and history – this shot nicely demonstrates that. All of which was put rather badly, but I guess you know what I mean :-)

  • b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l. I know what you mean about the driving shots, though. Of course most of mine are on account of my wife who derives some sort of pleasure trying to drive erratically when she see’s me put camera to eye. You try taking a solid shot when your wife is a) driving and b) driving erratically.
