***The Night Shift

By Mynett
This one is for my son Lee (Taulath) link Lee , who had his Birthday over the weekend, and I would so much have enjoyed his company at this lovely night shoot, it was a great event, lots of nice people and some good local beer. It was such a shame I could not be with him on his special day, so Happy Birthday xx

Many thanks for the comments and clicks on Taking the Pith, so many chuckles especially over the title. I have been so busy with all the autumn fruit, which has kept me away from the site for a while, I will try to catch up with you all soon.


Many thanks for the award IanSmile and Sue, and Trev wow Smile

with an image like this I am surprised mine is the only award you got.
I can clearly see this took some good work and time to achieve such a good image, I personally love it and think it deserves more recognition.

A most arresting low-light capture. Beautifully composed. Trains in general are not really my thing, but there's no doubt this is a cracking good image!
