A Quiet Stroll

By RockArea  
The prom goes east from Teignmouth for a mile or so and attracts quite a few people on a sunday afternoon. The main line to Penzance runs between the prom and East Cliff. I think this picture shows a nice juxtaposition between the casual strollers and the high speed train.

I like the composition on this, nice lines to follow. I think the orange right in the foreground is a bit distracting - more so in the large version. Good shot though.

Love the curve of the path and the reflections in the train windows.

High speed train? That one must be parked for you to catch it as cleanly as that.
A nice gentle, very english picture.

You've done it again with those gorgeous green fields in the background, David - just lovely. And I love the reflection in the train window. I really like the composition and presentation here.

Interesting textures in the stone wall and path. I like the way the sun is highlighting those fields in the distance.

Great shot, I think the train could get overtaken what with leaves on the line, mind you on that stretch it's prob' the wrong kind of salt that causes issues.

You're right Darren. That's the line where the salt water drenches the trains and stops them in their tracks! Thanks all for your comments. I've had this pic a little while and only yesterday decided I liked it a lot and posted it.

A nicely composed picture David. I have travelled on this train many times and what a scenic journey it is.
