Thanks and apologies to everyone who voted and commented on the first upload. Adam (sherlob) pointed out a damn annoying intrusion in V1 so I have deleted it. I really was very tired last night, that's my excuse...
Anyway - few pictures from yesterday's Beamish Reliability Run, a 150 mile event over the Durham moors, for vehicles registered before 1956, organised by Beamish Museum.
I know the moors, and V1 was the shot that I really wanted. For people who don't regard the sheep as the main point of interest, my Personal Technical Consultants advise me that this is a 1934 Riley Lynx Tourer.
V2 is a 1928ish Austin Seven, V3 a late 1920s/early 1930s CitroŽn.
Incidentally, twenty five minutes separate V1 form V3. Take a look at the skies, a lot can happen in that time.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Love the thunderous sky in version 3. Whenever I see chaps in vintage cars I think Mr Toad and want to shout "Parp, parp" Grin

How are they going to know where they're going if you scrub out the signs!!! TongueGrin

v1 is very 'Heartbeat' with a bit of geographical licence . v3 is a beauty, the light and colour with the brooding sky behind. The shape of the road imparts so much dynamism to the image (probably greater than the speed of the car in actuality!!)

You may guess Moira,that I am in the camp off, ''not regarding sheep as the main source of interest'',
so these fine old cars will go well with my old petrol pump uploads.
Mind you,sheep do have their uses.
I always thought that a sheepskin rug looks splendid in front of these old roaring coal fires we used to have in our living rooms !!

What did we do before Google??Thank you Jeff, notes updated and Personal Technical Consultants now in the plural.

Quote: My first thoughts on v1 were naturally "mint sauce"

Yes, these are quite a nice size now, without getting tough yet. Mind some that we saw would take a good few hours braising. It's funny how often my mind turns to food too...
Cheers everyone, we have been out attacking Himalayan Balsam this morning, we are in school this afternoon. Life will eventually calm down a bit...

That threatening sky in V3 has provided you with perfect light, Moira.
All three show a feeling of speed, well movement at least..speed was not so, well, speedy in those days.Wink
What a shame you clipped the wheel and mudguard in V2.

Hope you found a good picnic spot and that the weather behaved itself long enough for you two to enjoy it.Smile

The thumbnail jumps out from the Gallery, for its clean crisp formality. It's a lovely capture of late, low sunlight as well as a strong composition. Can I be picky and suggest getting rid of some tiny 'bits and pieces' here and there - the sheep's rear end on the right, the number on the headlight, and what looks like litter on the left (or is that sheep droppings on the verge?), they're not big enough to be of interest but big enough to be annoying. Just minor points, but I think that would improve the image so I hope you won't be offended.

Garrath, your comment brought a wry smile because I deliberately moved the sheep's backside down the slope before cropping, I thought it was important. Don't tell anyone... Wink
The number on the headlight is actually quite important because it's an organised, formal event. But maybe Co Durham's verges could be cleaned up a bit...
