1618

By NDODS    
Good Day to you all at ePz.

Thank you all so very much for taking the time out to view, comment and vote on my image yesterday. A further thank you goes to:781969 (Vikram), Graceland (Robin), TrevBatWCC (Trevor) and ColleenA (Colleen) for their User Awards.

Todays image comes from Sheffield Park (Bluebell Railway) where I spent a wonderful day exploring, capturing and riding on the train along the wonderful stretch of track between Sheffield Park and East Grinstead.

A little History Lesson: In 1618 English adventurer, writer, and courtier Sir Walter Raleigh was beheaded for allegedly conspiring against James I of England.

I hope that you all have a great day whatever you may be getting up to. The weather in Worthing promises to be a little indifferent so I shall be taking the day as it comes.

Everything went as well as can be expected with my appointments yesterday "Onwards and Upwards".

Regards NathanGrinGrinGrin

V2 - the B&W adds to the age of the engine. A 'U' class according to my other half! But I do like them with the windshields.

Well chosen pov, giving the impression of power in the loco. Colour my firm preference, so vibrant. I wonder why one of the numbers is 30,000 out!Grin

I think Raleigh spent 12 years in the Tower for secretly marrying one of Elizabeth's Maids of Honour. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

Nice one.

Nathan.

Many thanks for the upload both images have an impact. I am stuck as to which may be the better. I suppose it has to be the colour. The red is redder than red.

Regards.

Excellently taken, a bold image. Wonderful light control..
Your next stop should be York.. Welcome to the God own country, Grin and take a look of the trains in the Railway museum.
Another top capture from you Nathan

Glad things went ok for you..
