60009 'Union of South Africa'

By limmy62
Anoraks on again chums, and I hope I get clicks, if only for the suffering endured in catching this.
After travelling to Church Fenton Yorks, amidst the very unsympathetic weather recently experienced, then being challenged by a farmer for seemingly trepassing on his land, up to our knees in mud!!! (The farmer even felt sorry for us, that after taking this, just as the light was failing yet again, not for the first time) he kindly offered us a lift back to the station, which we gratefully accepted.
Hope you all think it was worth it, coz I'm not so sure!!!

Thanks for viewing

I seem to be first with my comment. I don't see why you are so unsure of this image Roger. It is very good, I like the diagonal composition and the sky is nice - and as it is no steamer, there can't be a steam cloud, can it? So - a good image and well worth my click.

The sleek lines are lost a bit by tree behind it is not alway the picture but the effort that goes in to it that makes it rewarding

At first I thought it looked a bit too dark under the framing, but if viewed large, it works well and looks great.

Good comp., super sky (this weather does have occasional advantages) & glad there was a happy ending! I agree with Robin re the tree, however, get that farmer to fell it! Wink
