'right away'

By limmy62
I was at the top of a ladder in my hall, erecting a cupboard when I heard some-one shout 'steamer', closely followed by a couple of pulls on a whistle.
After almost killing myself in getting my camera, attached to a lens that I would not normally use for such photographs at this location, I ran to the front door and commenced firing!
Under the circumstances, I am reasonably pleased with the result...
what do you think?

Thanks for viewing

They don't come much better than this, even though it's left handed Wink

Great shot & well taken opportunity. Love the way the smoke follows the contours of the b/g bushes. You live right next to a railway line? Must be quite noisy at times!

Inspite of the drama taking it, you've captured an excellent photograph.

To take this from a standing start up a ladder is amazing as beautifully captured

Lovely shot Roger, surely this one is a competition winner, get it entered at the CC.
PS a demo of the run would be good too!
