Backlit Steam

By GlynnisFrith
Well another dig into the hard-drive to find this image taken on a cold January day this year it was at the Great Central Railways winter gala, one good thing about it been cold you get lots of lovely steam this time as a bonus the sun came out too.

Well we are taking a trip across the Settle to Carlisle railway on Sunday with the Scots Guardsman on the front, it will be a long day but one we are looking forward to

Have a great weekend what ever do you

All that backlit steam and smoke makes for a very dramatic shot, Glynnis. That apart, it is well composed with good lead in lines from the rails and the coaches on either side, carrying the focus to the central feature. Like this one a lot.

Wonderful amount of steam, and those rails in the foreground really add to the image.
