The Driver

Like many young boys I wanted to be an engine driver, problem was by the time I grew up steam engines were distant memories so I became an academic instead! Trying to keep to my New Year's resolutions and move outside of my comfort zone, so here is a portrait shot. Taken on the Great Central Railway in Leicestersire, England. In fact, photography was real hard today, lots of high contrast light so highlights forever burning out. In the end, I managed a few half decent shots, this is probably the best.
