Trains

Here are a couple shots from different locations but both railway related.

This was taken last week at the Peak railway when I was in the peak district.


Under steam by alf.branch, on Flickr

This is one of my usual haunts and it is a train passing by on the west Cumbria caostal line which is rather nice to travel on if a little slow.


The Parton flyer by alf.branch, on Flickr

Guess the speed of this.

Love the steam shot. This is one topic which was made for mono.

Steam and monochrome = peaches and cream. Very hard to beat, but easy to enjoy

Re: Trains

Thanks every one I am glad you like the first shot.

The second one was just a matter of turning away from my real subject briefly a slight reposition of tripod and shooting as the train passed. Its the first time I have managed this in a few attempts usually in the same situation. I should read the timetable and set up for with a better composition.

Re: Trains

Great motion shot of the coastal train but the detail and nostalgia of the B&W is impossible to beat!

Re: Trains

Even I like the B&W where colour is irrelevant.

And looks like you gave the coastal train the hurry up - very effective, Alf.
