Poppy Line

By Jimbob
Having the choice of the two days, yesterday or today to go out with our Cameras, we picked today. Wrong choice, the weather was grey and damp, compared to the sunshine and blue skies we had yesterday.

The poppy line was still running at full steam for the tourists, so I attempted to capture the feelings of bygone days. I must admit I wasnt too enthusiastic as I clicked the shutter lol.

By the road bridge? a superb little railway and I think you've done a fine job with this Jimbo.
PS it that a spot of dust just up and left of the steam?

YepSpot on Chris you are right, there are two spots of dust now that you mention it lol. The problem is they get magnified something terrible. Looks like Camera maintenance directly after breakfast in the morning.

Thanks for looking..Jimbo.

Good angle on the train - you could probebly afford to crop some sky out to emphasise it a bt more.
