    Newer Older

    Steam train just North of Ribblehead viaduct, Blea Moor, with Ingleborough in the background.

    This is the Cumbrian Fellsman with LMS No.46115 on the 7th February 2009. (I am told.....Anyone who knows better, please let me know and I'll modify the text!)

      I believe that is what it is, yes! Thanks. I was lucky in that I'd just popped out for a walk, it being a lovely day, and guessed, from the hundred odd tripods set up pointing at the viaduct, that a steam train was about to pass!

      Steam, snow, Sun on Settle & Carlisle - people wait decades for that.

      Well I've been here just over a decade, and that sighting was a first - fine estimate ;-)

      This is a brilliant Winter scene ... love the wall in the foreground and the steam train coming round the bend, oh and the distant view of Ingleborough covered in snow ... I should have just said everything about it !!

      Is there detail in the black

    17. Mike.D.Green 23 months ago | reply

      Some, yes. If I were processing this now, I'd lift it a bit, selectively - this was a very early shot when I'd not even moved to having an SLR.

      fantastic depth! lovely scene well shot. You've got some terrific stuff here, when Terry says he's inspired by someone, I had to stop by and I'm glad I did.
