This location is more usually presented with a much closer crop on the locomotive and train. I really like the way you have allowed the surrounding woods a lot more space and placed the subject into its full environment
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

The trees are so sculptural that it seems a shame to crop them out....I have a shot from later in the sequence where the loco fills the frame more, but this picture is as much about the interplay of light and shade and the greys and browns of cloud and winter stems and dead leaves as the 80 tons of speeding loco!

It did involve climbing up a big ladder (which is still there, chained to the fence as it is a heavy so-and- so to carry and I am back in this spot tomorrow!

I hope no one steals the fence during the night Stephen.

Remarkably fine shot. I like the context of the countryside and the appearance of the smoke.

Just delightful! You wouldn't want to go any tighter than that!
