I have enjoyed seeing the work of my companions on Sunday and now offer a few of my own:

45407+61264 arriving from Heywood



76084 at Irwell Vale



61264 departing Irwell Vale



61264+76084 arriving from Heywood



61264 makes a smoky entrance



Everyone admires David's two Pentaxes



I suppose with the crop on the first shot, it is not clear why the smokebox front is so dark.

The later shot of 61264 approaching the same location is better timed.

The close-up of 61264 is very like David's.

I like the way you have caught the 'Standard' looking black and shiny, Neil.

Two nice sets there Gents, I love the first one of yours Peter again mono has won me over. Are you sure everyone is looking at David's Pentax`s!, or are they looking away from my Nikon

Neil, a lovely couple of shots, well captured.


Last one from me.

It was a perfect day Alan. It started off just like the previous day at Beamish, cold, wet and misty but the light changed as the day went on. Quite a few of these were shot directly into the sun, particularly Barrie's tracks image, and the Pentax lenses coped quite well.

For the track shot I was using a Sigma 24-70 f2.8.
At Beamish, the previous day, I was so disappointed with the focusing of the DA17-70 and the 50-135, I was having a try using the Sigma and a Tamron 70-200 f2.8.

However, as David has said, The weather/light was so much better on the Sunday I'm really none the wiser.
