A great wonderful image with great atmosphere to it. A well captured night scene with the light and Exposure being spot on.
And i like the little silhouetted man on the left gives good perspective to this image.

Powerful work Robin. I love the little man on the left in a pool of light. He appears to be walking away nonchantly and totally ignoring the big beasts. Perhaps he's just been to Asda. helen

What an absolutely SPLENDID image Robin. Could easily have been taken in the glory days of steam. Only one thing gives it away - the smokebox door numberplate of 60163. However that doesn't detract from my pleasure at viewing this shot.
