Big Boys Toys!

The West Somerset Railway is Britainís longest standard gauge steam railway and runs from Bishops Lydeard a few miles outside Tauton, to the coast at Minehead. The first half of its journey passes through the Quantock Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty, and then the trains follow the coastline between Exmoor and the Bristol Channel. This shot was taken a few weeks ago, on a visit to Watchet Harbour.

Thanks for all the great support, comments and clicks on the 'Bird Feeding Saga'

Excellent contrast & detail.

Everything good. Composure and contrast are on the mark. The candid appearance of the subjects in discussion along with their grimy work clothes really make it. Even the countryside and the sky co-operated.
