Another super shot that has so much detail in it when you fully enlarge it ~ a joy to study ~ YSL

Thank you again Nick, it is always nice when people actually open the pictures up to look properly. I was looking to place the Planet in the context of the gloomy old station of years gone by, and the Duke as bringing loads of happy people to holiday sunshine, and get the two in one scene. It makes me feel really happy when a guy of your knowledge & ability awards me stars for it! Thank you very much. Best Wishes Peter

Very nice photo. How long has Pickering had the roof?

Hi kdh560,

Thank you for your visit and nice comments. I am pleased that you noticed the roof. It has only just been completed, there was still some bits of work being done to complete it when I took this. I'm not sure if it is a good or bad thing, but for the sake of this picture I think it fitted. Your tonemapped pictures in your gallery have an interesting look to them, almost like a painting, which I must come and visit properly soon.

Best wishes Peter
