EDITORS COMMENTS
. This photograph captures the grandeur of Balcombe Viaduct, a remarkable feat of engineering that has stood the test of time. Built in 1841, this iconic bridge spans across the River Ouse on the London-Brighton line in West Sussex. Standing proud at an impressive length of 1,475 feet, it is supported by an array of 37 semi-circular arches with intricately designed pierced piers. Eric de Mare's lens skillfully freezes a moment from 1954, showcasing the viaduct's timeless elegance against a backdrop of lush greenery. The image perfectly encapsulates its Victorian heritage and showcases its architectural brilliance.

This magnificent structure continues to inspire awe among all who witness it – an enduring symbol of Britain's rich industrial past. Eric de Mare's masterful composition allows us to appreciate every intricate detail; from each meticulously crafted arch to the graceful curve that stretches into infinity.
