Rigger snaps stunning shot of early morning fog over Forth bridges

Rigger snaps stunning shot of early morning fog over Forth bridges

A rigger working on the Queensferry Crossing has captured a majestic view of the fog as it engulfed the Forth bridges this morning.

Ryan Gabellone was stunned when he reached the top of the tower at 7.30am and saw the expansive fog stretching across the Forth Estuary.

The fog, which covered many parts of the country on Wednesday and Thursday, has hit passengers with delays with a number of flights and ferries running late and some services cancelled.

For Ryan, the swirling fog of the last two days has resulted in his favourite view to date.

"When you get up to the road section, it is still misty and quite cold,” Ryan explains. “It is like a summer’s day up the top.

“I have been here for about nine months and it is only in the last two days I have seen that [the fog].

“It is away now. It usually dies down about lunchtime and goes away."

In August, the Queensferry Crossing became the tallest bridge in the UK. The bridge’s three towers are expected to reach their final height of more than 200 metres this autumn.

Adding the fog to his ever-growing collection of sunrises and sunsets, Ryan says the view never fails to disappoint.

“It is great," he said. "It is just another day in the office I suppose but it makes you appreciate your job a lot more because you get to see that view every day.

“People won't get to see that in their lifetime and we are coming up to it every day.”

The foggy Forth

Greig Rutherford also caught a cracking photo of the fog from the top of the Forth Rail Bridge while on a tour.

Snapping the shot at 11.30am, Greig has been to the top of the bridges a couple of times but said the October 1 fog made for some pretty spectacular viewing.

"There was a tour and I was lucky enough to be up there again," Greig said.

"I have been up a couple of times now and that was probably the best - seeing the fog clearing over the top of it."
