I have been resticent in putting this one up because the engine is slightly blurred in motion, I'm hoping that I can get away with it....see what you think
Taken back in July on the Ffestiniog railway, Porthmadog, North Wales. The smoke was almost as black as the skies!
For those who know him, you can just see Dougie and his red coat if you squint hard enough
Excellent shot, well done.
Beautiful shot, lovely composition and a moody feel.
Just up the road from me!! Great shot - just love the smoke stacks and sky.
A good 'un.Nicely captured.
Love the dramatic look of this.

I think you just about got away with it. Great shot, nicely composed with the engine running into the frame. Fantastic sky. I think I might have been tempted to crop out the car on the right though.
I love this. And the smoke is great. I would be tempted to crop the road out and zoom in a bit.
Going back to your roots as regards work?
Great shot of this fine railway
Can I have a prize now, please ?????
Luvverly stuff, Angie, hope to see you in a few weeks
Wow. Beautiful shot.
wow I really like this one Angie
Pretty good! Nice broody sky and a free pain in the eyeballs squinting
Train looks good too!
I did find him in the end...
Hi everyone and thanks so much for all your clicks and comments
I'm glad the train dosent look too blurred, hopefully it just gives a sence of movement instead ....
I did think about cropping the right side down more to get rid of the car, but I quite liked the feeling of train and car running side by side, old and new kind of feel if you see what I mean. Was also worried about the train being too far over on the right side of the picture if I cropped it anymore.
My Dad has obviously not seen this pic yet or he would have told you all what the engine is called
I used to holiday in Porthmadog as a child for years and years with my Dad and Grandparents. Our flat was on the hill above the harbour....and geeky me used to know the name of all the engines on the railway just by their whistles. Its a fantastic area of Wales, can't wait to get back there again.
The train looks like it is making all the clouds! Super image.
