The story behind this image

A lovely warm and sunny Saturday at the end of September 2020 was all the incentive my wife Liz and I needed to pack a picnic and head southwards from our home in North Wales to the seaside at Barmouth, at the mouth of the Mawddach estuary in Southern Snowdonia.

Something I've always wanted to do is walk across the famous railway bridge that spans the estuary, so having parked up just outside of town we made our way towards the bridge.

I photographed this view overlooking the bridge as we approached, with the sweep of the train tracks providing a handy anchor and leading line for the composition.
