Fire In The Sky, Fulham Railway Bridge, London


This photo shows Fulham Railway Bridge looking downsteam; it crosses the River Thames in London and is very close to Putney Bridge, and carries the London Underground District Line between Putney Bridge station on the North, and East Putney station on the South. Fulham Railway Bridge can also be crossed on foot, on the downstream (east) side.
The truss bridge is of lattice girder construction and 418 metres long, with 5 spans totalling 301 metres actually across the river, two further spans on the southern shore, and one on the north. It was designed by Brunel's former assistant William Jacomb, built by Head Wrightson and opened in 1889.

Awesome, you are lucky to find such a beautiful view. That redness is truly like a firelight from above the sky reflected back by the water....
