Thanks for all views, votes and comments on my 'Looking Up at Brimingham Library' upload!
This image, of the Severn Valley Railway, was taken a couple of years ago near Trimpley Reservoir in Worcestershire.
I did check to make sure a train was not approaching - I didn't want this to be my last ever photograph!
Have a good day - lots of sun around - let's hope it lasts!!

There's more to this than meets the eye.
Nostalgic of past train journeys and I love those trees on the left
and the little house/hut on the bend.

Nice natural colours, a focal point that leads the eye, light and shade, straight lines and curves; anyone would think you were good at this photography lark.

As I often comment, simplicity is the sophistication of great photography and this is great photography Richard; I wish the M5 had been as clear as this track today.
