southeastern set

By colmar  
Good Morning,

A set of snow images from the past weekend. V1 is Folkestone beach with a good dusting of snow. V2 Folkestone Funicular the top station captured on the same day as the blizzard raged. V3 the platform at Folkestone Central with one set of footprints, did they walk or wait ? V4 Mari awaiting a train any train to get her on her way to her own depot. V5 a typical Southeastern station covered in snow.In this case Sturry.V6 the train that took me to Victoria and back and the "tool" for getting all the wonderful snow images.

Camera hand held and yes I urge large and for window users f11 and ctrl+ ..... for mac user large and cmd+

Many thanks for the comment and votes on Otford Snow and Sun , and indeed a few other images , all votes and comment are gratefully received and truly appreciated.

Morning Colin, what a wonderful set of images, for me it has to be V1, I love the simplicity of the composition, wonderful shot.

Morning Colin

Great set of images you have put together here - like V1 for it's simplicity and V6 for it's colour, detail & clarity.

lovely image kaz

I absolutely adore V1. I've never seen a beach in the snow, well of course I've seen photos, but not actually been there myself. There's something fascinating about it somehow. Maybe one day! Love the composition of the lone tree and the snow hues against the icy water tones.

one example where it may be necessary to have the sea in focus but possibly had you done that the isolated shrub/plant would not have been as noticeable, I just think perhaps a different viewpoint might have been the clue/answer, overall a good set - one other thing! a judge might point out this image is cut into 3 and you could do without the sky - food for thought

An exploration of composition and bleakness. Love V1, but the others are good too.
Ann has a good point regarding the sky, crop down to the horizon or a bit below and you have something cleaner, more minimal. But the focus works for me, sharp where it needs to be.

Moira , great minds et al, I had went back to the RAW file this am, and tried what Ann suggested was about to load as a variant when "ding" mail, mod uploaded to southeastern set .... you ( and Ann) are right, it does actually aid the composition, many thanks for the mod. Colin

Great series. V3 for me also.

19 Jan 2010 10:22AM
I enjoyed this set, V1 is a different view of the snow, like Barbara I find it difficult to put snow and a beach together so thanks for that. I always find your railway pictures very pleasing and these, all wrapped in the snow make a parcel well worth opening. I like V5 a typical station building all closed down by the weather.

A fun set V1 & V3 for me

V1 has a lot of potential (4 & 6 are well framed too). Nice use of a limited depth of field. The centre placed horizon looks a little unbalanced, so I'd be tempted to try a bit of creative cropping. Over all nice set of images.

19 Jan 2010 2:15PM
Great series of wintery scenes Colin,well captured..................

Hi Colin, what a great set, I love v2 just because! but 1 & 6 are lovely.

Interesting - all of them but I like V 4 most - the station platform seems such a cold, lonely place to be. Sue

Great images. I like the lonely first one the best.
Have been to Folkestone ! We used to get the hover craft from there and also Dover to France when we were kids 40 or so years ago. Swift and Sure I think were two of the hovercraft names .
It amazing to think you have snow and we have none here. Interesting images to see. Thanks for your encouraging comments. gill

Like the mixture of snow and beach also like V6 for the yellow stripe providing colour and aiding the composition. Great work as always Colin. Paul

well what can I say...everyone has already said it all!
these are powerful shots, have to say V1 has to be my fave, as not often you see the sand covered in snow, and the plant on the beach is so crisp in large size
Fabulous set of images Colin, v1 and v4 may favs.
Great series well led by the atmospheric V1.

Nice set Colin but, I guess, I'm like most others in concentrating on V1, for me the crop at the top really improves, if for nothing else, it gets away from the square format, which I'm not keen on for oudoor photography!

Great series of snowy scenes with #6 my favourite for all the
converging lines and the snow still on top of the train
