What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Six years ago I was travelling from Liskeard to Exeter by train and couldn’t resist poking the lens of my Fujifilm X20 out of an open window to capture the Royal Albert Bridge.

The bridge spans the River Tamar and also the border between Cornwall and Devon. Designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, construction commenced in 1854 with the bridge opening on 2 May 1859.

For the rail enthusiasts amongst you the train was ‘The Royal Duchy’, the 14.00 First Great Western service from Penzance to London Paddington, powered by High Speed Train power cars 43151 and 43195.
