John ( alsoppdigitalart ) inspired us to look at Tanfield Railway. Over forty years we've been in the North East, including several years just up the road from Tanfield, and we had never visited...
Anyway, walking round I recognised some very familiar 'faces' from John's uploads, but I wanted to do my own thing too. So I photographed the foxgloves, against the very photogenic backdrop of decaying rolling stock.
I took this with a view to square, see V2, but actually I think I prefer the landscape composition. The paintwork has been slightly desaturated, the original really is quite garish.
Thanks for looking,
Edit - Foxgloves choose some very inconvenient places to grow, see V3. It's not easy crawling under railway couplings carrying a rucksack!
