A dozen from 2020

Because of the pandemic it would misleading to show my 12 samples of 2020 on a month by month basis. For several months I didn't take any pictures at all. They are however being shown in chronological order.
The early shots were from a camera club coverage of Durham Chinese New Year celebrations and a photo group outing to the Firth of Forth to capture the bridges and Falkirk Kelpies and then the York Viking Festival and another camera club outing to Ripon. In July I snapped steam loco Britannia emerging from a cloud of its own exhaust at Ribblehead with the first mainline charter train since lockdown. In August I went with Barrie Forbes and another photo buddy, not a Pentax user, to do photography at Newcastle Central Station and in September there was a camera club evening shoot at Teesside's Infinity Bridge. Then in October during a brief window of opportunity in Wales I spent two days photographing action at the Ffestiniog Railway's Bygones Weekend.

Great shots! My personal favourite is #6, the steam engine. The way it seems to "appear" from that blanket of steam and smoke is superb.

Hi davidtrout, my favorite is the modern locomotive train as the rest of the station almost appears monochrome . It makes the subjects colours striking. Plus I like the angle of view which creates this impact, best of luck 2021.

Nice set David, quite a steamy 2020.
I've enjoyed your year review.
I can't choose a favourite, each has its interest.
Best regards
Nigel

If I were voting for one it would be the illuminated bridge for its composition and the fascinating shapes but since it isn't a vote I'll applaud the whole lot !
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Many thanks Lennybloke . 2010 has been my least productive year in photography...except for the fact I had time to go through a lot of my earlier RAW images to re process them and improve on image quality.

Super set David

Love 2 and 7 for the richness of colour. I think they have a very 'film' feel to them

A fine selection Barrie but you should start using your proper cameras more often....you may be too old to die young but not so old as to prevent you carrying a heavier proper camera again.
