Continuing the series. This place recently featured in John alsoppdigitalart's uploads, but I don't think that mine will overlap with his. I realise that I don't actually have any pictures of trains to show you. That's just the way my mind works, I don't photograph boats at Dungeness either...
Thanks for looking,
Moira

This is most definitely you, though. An image of contrasts, natural/man made, green/brown, old/new, points/curves......

If you go back in a year the chains will be completely covered with the bramble. Lovely hard and soft textures.

And you couldn't get a greater contrast than the freshness of new growth and the rusting man made cast-offs.

I like the working of your mind here, Moira. It has immediately reminded me of life and death. Super compo, texture and colour contrast! Certainly deserves a UA.

It's always amazing what survives where, Moira, this image being a classic example of a new shoot apparently thriving with its feet in virtually nothing but air. Well spotted and captured. Carol

An almost perfect green leaf fallen onto a pile of rusty worms. Then I notice a few little rusty spots on the leaf, like it is getting the disease too. Well captured Moira........Sandy

The bramble was actually growing up through the links. Yes it has hints of rusty spots - and look closely, there are hints of green in the rust on the links.
I love it when tones harmonise like that. It often happens when iron, wood and stone weather together.
Thanks again everyone,
Moira

Like the image for all the reasons above although I had trouble figuring out what the rusty things were--- one can get $$$ here for scrap iron like that...

Rusty spots on the leaves, green spots on the rusty bits - also a juxtaposition of new and old, but even the leaf will go to decay..........

It's rust all the way Moira, the leaves are even keeping up the appearance making this shot a very well captured image, cracking detail and the leaf is true to form . very life like.

Methinks that Mick doesn't like mint with his sausages... Great to see you back, oh Rust Meister!
Thanks everyone, and particular thanks to Julian for his UA this afternoon.
I'll be back when I've cooked Bill's dinner. (But not sausages...)
