Glad to see you back once more for another week of my desktop wallpaper shots. So far, from last summer’s North Wales holiday I’ve chosen shots showing off the beautiful landscapes of North Wales, it’s fantastic castles (which together form a world heritage site), some more varied shots, and a week of nautical shots. There’s just one week to go, and this week I’m picking a few shots of what, for me, was the subject I kept returning to time and time again during our holiday: the railway bridge across the Mawddach at Barmouth.
One of the distinctive features of the railway bridge are these twin portals for boats to pass underneath the bridge and up the Mawddach. Originally, there was a drawbridge to allow river traffic through, but this was replaced with a swing bridge in 1901. I must admit that it never occurred to me that the bridge was a swing bridge when I walked over it; it looked very permanent!
