During the winter months steam gala's are a must to visit. The combination of cold and steam make for atmospheric images. This one taken on the Watercress line in Hampshire. This has been converted to mono in photoshop.

Really nice shot .. the impassive expression of the 'driver' (is that the word) and the mysterious anonymity of the person behind together with the atmospheric mood of the image works so well with the monochrome to make this an ageless shot. Regards, Paul.
