Brick Train

By MB63
This is the Brick train sculpture near Darlington taken Easter Sunday 2008. I got up early for the sun rise and the Orange glow on the red bricks looked great. But the bit I liked best was the snow on the very top of the train which almost looked like smoke coming out of the funnel.
Hope you like it.

Had never even heard of this sculpture. What a great image - the snow just makes it!

I've seen this train a few times myself. My brother used to live in Newton Aycliffe, just down the road.

The early morning light was well worth the early start. The low angle put buckets of detail in the snow.

It's tough to tell on a picture this small, but the bricks could do with a lift just to bring out a little more separation. Perhaps it looks better in the full version?

Nice shot.

This is an amazing piece of sculpture which I saw a lot of years ago.

I work with someone from Darlington & he told me that when it was first build before the cement had time to set some traveling people took it down & built a house with it & it had to be re-built how true this is I do not know

Extraordinary photo. So unusual and your pic of it is very good. Snow presents a good contrast of colour and makes the red bricks really stand out. Paul

An Excellent shot. I like the contrast in the warm colours against the cold snow.
