BATHED in the moody light of a stormy sky, this dramatic shot of the Forth Bridge was captured on camera by our Head of Medical Physics, Bryan Hynd.
It was one of the breathtaking entries in an international competition which showcases the world’s most iconic buildings, landmarks and natural wonders as we have never seen them before.
Bryan’s mercurial snap of Scotland’s most renowned bridge made it into the top 10 after striking a chord with more than 47,000 enthusiasts who cast their vote in the Photocrowd contest.
Bryan, of Cairneyhill, Fife, only took up photography a few years ago and is surprised at how well his landscape and wildlife images have been received.
He explained: “I live in Fife and the Forth Rail Bridge is one of my favourite subjects. It has so much character and can look completely different depending on the angle, the weather and the light. The shot I entered in the competition was taken from North Queensferry. I like it because of the moodiness of the sky and the shading on the rocks.
I am delighted my photo ended eventually being placed sixth. There were many incredible entries.”
The Forth Bridge wasn’t the only landmark flying the flag for Scotland, with the Kelpies and Scott Monument also making appearances in the competition.
