Light at the end of the tunnel

By gary_d
On my last image a few commented on the light at the end of the tunnel well here it is.

It is amazing that there used to be track and platforms where those trees are.

On the last image a couple commented that there was too much colour and they were valid points but I did not add saturation, the colour was picked up by the artificial light, this image is taken in natural light and if you look at the roof there is a strong red colour which is probably the reason.

Thanks for looking.

Regards. - Gary

Our minds sometimes do not respond to colour when it's there, we just think stone must be drab.
Captured beautifully.

The detail you have captured is excellent, Gary.
Wonderful colours, lighting and textures.
I am always in awe of these superbly engineered structures.

I've enjoyed both of these, they complement each other. Well taken in difficult circumstances.

It is the dampness in the tunnel that saturates the colour Gary.
I saw this when I worked in the railway and I see it on some of
my rust that is covered by the tide coming in.There is a bit of rust
that is constantly in a pool of water under a pier at Leith docks.
If I was to upload it every comment would be I have oversaturated
it far too much !!

We have similar tunnel in the Meon Valley. The MOD have sealed it, hate to think whats inside. This is superb Gary, light, colours and detail magnificent, nice
to see the daylight.

Always good to see the light at the end of the tunnel
but yesterday's was a photographic success taken in the dark.
The colour is wonderful!

We walked through a couple of disused railway tunnels in the Colwyn valley near Beddgelert, maybe 30 years ago. Torchlight revealed a few details but was required mainly to prevent us falling over! I believe the rails have been replaced and the line re-opened as a heritage railway.
More to the point, we have walked the Monsal Trail in Derbyshire on a number of occasions, most recently on Wednesday; it covers an 8 mile stretch of the old Midland Railway. All the tunnels have been re-opened, illuminated inside and the track base tarmacked for Sustrans and other cyclists and walkers; it's enormously popular.
But when looking round the inside of those tunnels I prefer to use my imagination, which is so ably supported by your excellent photographs.

Now, I love the different colours in this version. The mauvey colour on the right is very nicely balanced with the red and orange opposite. The green trees at the end of the tunnel hold it all togther. Lovely shot.

I quite agree Gary . A huge sigh of relief when you see the light at the end of the tunnel . Whether a problem solved or the real thing .So many beautiful journeys were lost by the Beeching years . This one is so lovely to see with all its colours and the green trees outside xx
