I had a quick ride out on Sunday - which means i was further from the garden than usual - and went up to the Ribbleshead Viaduct in Yorkshire with a couple of friends.

Ostensibly, just to play with the camera with some reasonable view, but by a stroke of genius timing (that means pure luck) the steam train was due to arrive minutes after we arrived on the grassy slopes of the nearby hills.

I don't do much in the way of landscapes, and certainly don't do much in the way of trains, but here are the two combined.

I added a soft blurred vignette to finish off the shot.
