      1. 🙂 You made it turn in on itself. It’s good to see the original – if not the original photo, then a reference to the structure, like the Wikipedia entry. Was Forth someone’s name?

      2. If you are interested in seeing the original photos for these, you could have a look here: https://geotopoi.wordpress.com/2014/08/31/forth-road-bridge/

        The three crossings span a narrow part of the estuary of the River Forth. (The estuary is known as the Firth of Forth.) They form part of the transpot links between Edinburgh and the Fife peninsula.

        Had to do some research regarding the etymology of the name. According to Wikipedia:

        “Forth derives from Proto-Celtic *Vo-rit-ia (slow running), yielding Foirthe in Old Gaelic and Gweryd in Welsh”

      3. Firth of Forth sounds so odd to my American ears – an estuary of the River Forth, that helps!! 😉 Slow-running, OK, that makes sense. I wonder if there’s a relationship to forth as in “goes forth.” Probably is.
        I refreshed my memory of where Edinburgh is on Google maps and saw the 3 bridges from above, then I checked the view from the ground – very cool! I “drove” along Shore Rd. in S. Queensbury…that just makes me want to travel even more. 😦
        I forgot to mention that I like what you did with the outer part of this mandala – the penciled quality is really nice, and even nicer when I think that you must have derived it from all that crisp, hard-edged steel.
