Stockport M60 Blue Pyramid at dusk

Looking west along towards the Blue Pyramid next to junction one the M60 (former M63) motorway. The viewpoint is the bridge that carries Wellington Rd North, the A6 across the motorway. The Blue Pyramid houses offices of the Co-operative Bank. It was built in the 1980s. The steeple on the left is St John's Methodist Church, Brinksway, the A560.

It is dusk time and the traffic has left red light trails during the 4 second exposure. The flashing indicator lights have left a trail of yellow dashes. The slip road on the left leads to the roundabout at junction one. The sign says 'A5145 Stockport West'. On the right can be seen part of the Stockport railway viaduct, built in the early 1840s.
