I am an enthusiastic amateur. I take mainly 35mm film. My photographic aspiration is to produce landscape photos that present the subject in the most pleasing and natural way possible. I no longer participate in the forum due to the absolute pig's ear that G**gle have made of it. I appreciate sincere comments and will endeavour to visit the galleries of those who leave them. COPY AND PASTED COMMENTS WILL BE IGNORED AND/OR DELETED.

I am delighted that you liked this one, Odd. This is taken in our village, in the churchyard.

Hilsen, Amelia

Cheers Peter.


It's on the site of some old colliery lines - you can make out the route on the aerial shot/map. When the Metro was being built, they used these tracks for testing the trains.

Thanks Amelia.


When a werra lad...... this was all fields with three colliery lines running down towards the river, and this was the source of many boyhood adventures. I grew up in a house about half a mile away from this spot, so it was nice to visit.


I've seen quite a few penstocks in Norway, Keith, and one or two in Wales; but our trips to Scotland tend to revolve around the family in Edinburgh, and sentimental trips around the Kingdom of Fife. No mountains there.

As far as the rusty pipework is concerned, (well spotted), maybe it was left that way to give photographers a colour contrast. However, it does look as if they have replaced some sections on 3 of the pipelines, so maybe they are leaving the easiest one to repair, it is by the steps, until last. :)

Cheers, Amelia
