Pictures from the exhibition: Letting off steam


From a station (yesterday) to a train today....

I think this is the train photo Cranberry Morning was referring to in her comment a week or two ago.  It was taken this time last year at a KWVR Steam Gala Weekend.  The engine let off a rush of steam before setting off on its journey up the valley.  The scene has a timeless quality.  The low sun was so bright that I could hardly see what I was photographing - but sometimes you just get lucky!

  11. A fabulous capture Jenny - the B&W emphasises its timeless quality. Well snapped. I'm not convinced luck had anything to do with this result: when preparedness and opportunity come together, amazing things occur! Thanks for sharing this wonderful inclusion in your exhibition.
