Parton Railway station

Not shot of the beach at Parton for a change but shots taken a trip to shoot the sunset on the beach.


These are leading to and of the railaway station at Parton on the West Cumbria coast line this is a request stop


The lovely phone box with the station in the background


Parton night by Alf Branch, on Flickr


Two rather wide shots stitched together


Parton station night 1 by Alf Branch, on Flickr


The platform to Carlisle with the sea in the background and the last light of the sunset


Parton station night 2 by Alf Branch, on Flickr


What do you think?

Re: Parton Railway station

Definitely a different genre to your landscapes Alf! I'm not sure of the first, but I really like the other two, especially the last one.

Re: Parton Railway station

A very nice set, and I’ll take a contrarian view on the first. There’s something other worldly about the phone box and the post box, both standing out against the overall darker background.
