One for the Steam Enthusiasts


Photo Information
A different take on Steam Trains - this is the steam locomotive Hercules shot at Dartmouth, with the fireman spraying the coal in the tender with water just prior to steaming away. Shot with the Sigma 105mm Macro lens and treated to pseudo HDR processing in Photomatix 4.1

An unusual take on the steam scene, David. The sort of detail which appeals to me.
Best wishes,

Andrew
