Very nice, Jethro! Great cityscape.
Warmest wishes, Liam ;)
.... and the train was kind enough to pose for me Liam. I bet there's not many of them a day come through Raleigh Sunday.
You can expect more from this bridge now that I've found it!
Cheers - Jethro
Nice shot,that train looks a bit of a monster. I'm sending this from a Kings Cross bound train so I will be adding a few shots of London in the next few weeks.
Almost forgot the like.
Thanks Vince that train actually has people on board. A bit of a rarity still here in the USA.
I shall look forward to your London shots and compliment them myself in November (I hope)!
Cheers ol' buddy - Jethro
Great capture, Jethro. Lovely photo! How did you get the train to 'sit' for you?
This new camera can take multiple shots at a hell of a rate Jean. So I just held the shutter down and closed my eyes and here it is!
Well, sort of.
Best wishes from Raleigh - Jethro
Is it near Billericay?
Hmmmm.... you're going to have to explain that one Peter ol' chum.
Billericay is in Essex isn't it?
Yes you're correct Jethro, Rayleigh is a neighbouring town to Billericay in Essex. I accept the subtle difference in spelling, one wonders if there are any tenuous links twixt the two towns (US & UK)it is often the case that there is.
My spelling is atrosious Peter so no worries there, you can have all the latitude, leeway and rope you need!
Tenuous links Peter? I think Rayleigh has links with photography in relation to the colour of the sky and sunsets (see this) as it was the old bloke (Lord Rayleigh of Essex) who figured this out hence the name.
I cannot find a link to Raleigh. Sir Walter was born in Devon, so that's no good either.
The name derives (according to Wikipedia) from Saxon or somesuch for she-goat stream. It only goes to show!
I smell bacon, so that's all the research I can do for now.
All the best - Jethro
Were you checking schedules or is this a stroke of luck? Great shot either way!
Pure luck Joy
A train had to come - remember this one?
The lines don't add much to the composition otherwise.
Beautiful composition and colors, YS2 + LIKE5! Best wishes from Germany, Volkert
Thank you Volkert
Best wishes from Central England - Jethro
