Taking a break from the Saltwick Dawn shots and going to try this one for size. Taken whilst walking around the engine sheds at Grosmont with Dave.
The hi-vis jackets are a requirement in the yard, health and safety dictate this, so I prefer to work with them photographically, rather than trying to fight them.
I just had to wait for the bloke wearing it to get into a suitable position to have it reflected in this composition. Shortly afterward he moved to a different engine to get that one ready.
Not a lovely sunrise this one and probably not for the masses, so cheers if you made it to here ... have a great weekend.
Great idea, and an opportunity well spotted!
I like it. Makes you wonder what that bright orange is. Good eye on you......Sandy
So different to the norm, well composed.
Thank you all, already doing better than I expected for a Friday afternoon
This is great. It demonstrates a good eye for seeing things and has been very well taken. Andy
very different and works very well
Looks like a goldfish in a bowl. You love fish don't ya, what with the salmon, trout, Tuna and now goldfish, just no stopping ya is there? Excellent shot btw, very different even quirky and I'm a quirky kinda guy, I'd defo give this one wall space.
Thanks you lot, what a pleasant surprise ... thought this would sink without a trace on here ... glad it didn't though
Have a great weekend all,
LOL ... very fishy me Simon
Glad you like it mate, hope all's well wiv ya
Quote: thought this would sink
Fish don't sink mate, they bob. There ya go new title, 'Bob the Goldfish' and on Charlottes pic today is 'Dennis the Dragonfly' wow it's a cool kind o' day.
I'm real good fanks, in one of my funny moods today, I missed a course of tablets yesterday.
I love this type of image - well timed and I like the contrast of colour between the reflected jacket and the rest of the darker image - excellent work Paul
Bloody nice shot Mr S, a brave man putting this up, and on A FRIDAY!!!! LOL.
Honestly it is a great industrial shot, I can smell the oil and steam, it feels alive.
As you say, not for the purists, but they are the ones missing out.
don't look now
It's very good indeed, Paul.
That splash of colour in a largely monotone image really works a treat.
A great opportunity well seen and well taken, and makes an impressive and gritty change from your landscape shots.
Must have been quite liberating not to have been burdened by walking around with your portable Great-Light-and-Tremendous-Sky-with-added-Ocean-and-Lighthouse Machine... ! (Your car must humungous!!!)
Saying wot Bill just said
PMSL @ Bill ... I tow it behind, it won't fit in the boot. Cost a fortune to put some running gear onto it though This type of photography I like, it recharges my batteries and gives me a buzz.
Take the tablet now Simon, there's a good boy
You could always get 'er indoors (or is she outdoors at the mo?) to carry it for you!
What, wiv her back?
Cheers Andy, that's a huge compliment, thanks for your UA
What, she's back already? I thought she was exiled in Leeds!
I meant her dodgy back ... she's back Sunday, all being well Bill, cheers
I like it a lot paul, reckon a head showing in the reflection would have perfected it but then you'll probably disagree
Still gets my vote though....
Don't disagree mate, but I couldn't get it where he was stood without compromising the other elements that set the scene. Had he been a foot shorter then bingo
That said, I do like the abstract'ness? of it
Better get the dinner shopping started, then
And the wine shopping....
... list already started Bill
Really like this mate superbly composed
the reflection is the icing on the cake for me buddy.its very different for you, but as always, youve pulled it off.

I can see it now!! both running towards each other down the platform with arms flung open LOL
you get me drift

You old romantic you ... but I'm driving, so unless we decided to stop off to re-enact it, then highly unlikely
Looking for the out of the ordinary is what makes this hobby of ours so much fun. Well spotted and the wait for the moment was worth the effort. Nice splash of colur in this otherwise monochrome image.
you could have made your own wet patch to make the puddle bigger!!
A great image, i love the contrast between the orange colour and the rest of the image.
I did that on Saltwick Bay earlier on ... took it all out of me
Cheers guys, have a great weekend,
pmsl....probably what you did too!
Very well spotted and executed Paul not sure about the dripping water(?) down the centre wheel though, probably because its in focus and the wheel isn't if you see what I mean.
Great colours and composition
That all impiortant splash of colour, Paul. Ron.
Fair enough Darren, but that was one of the components I wanted to keep in shot ... if it doesn't do it for you then fine!!!
Extremely well spotted and captured. A very exciting excellent photograph.
This will do nicely to go with the set of other cracking shots you have from here, good to see something different as well.
Playing catch up, lets see what else you,ve uploaded this week then.
A nice shot
Thank you all, have a great weekend and an even better weekend.
Quote: Had he been a foot shorter then bingo
Invite me one day then, problem solved!! Mind you, it would have to be a really wide puddle as well
Like it a lot BTW
LOL ... will do matey
Cheers fella, hope all's well with you and yours,
Great image Paul really like this
Looks great large
Nice one Paul ,
The perspective and d.o.f almost make this look like a macro of a toy train. Which its not , Clever stuff !
Colin, Dave ... cheers guys. Have a great weekend guys, enjoy whatever you get up to.
Gets my vote mate
Like the drip myself odd that aint it
Oh, cracking use of dof, and that reflection....
got to say, best one of yours i have seen in ages (yes, i like the others lots) but, contrast between mono and colour, hard metal and water, all key components. well composed, with the step? pointing towards the reflection
deserves at least 1.5 votes
Cheers Dave & Graham.
Paul, that's a great compliment thanks. I didn't think it would tickle many peoples fancies, but I must confess to be quite blown away by the reaction to it thus far.
Reflective Jacket, what size do you take got one in the shed, interesting picture , have a good weekend, look out for you on the train
XL Doug ... you can't miss me, especially if I'm stood up
I'm not usually fan of selective colour. But I'll go with this one.
I think it is a great sunrise,one of your best.Well seen Paul.
It's not selective colour per sť Steve, just a dark oily environment with a splash of bright colour. If you look, there are some very small patches of colour dotted around. Cheers though.
Thanks too David and a huge ta for your UA, I never expected to get one ... let alone two
LOL ... sunrise indeed Tom
Yep...Specsavers for me
Very well seen Paul, love it
LOL ... cheers for coming back Steve
Ta too MrW
Great mage, love the gritty detail.
