Today’s photo is once again from the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway. The loco you see here has just hauled a train from Duffield to Wirksworth; not only does she need to be replenished with coal, but also with water, which is happening here. Standing still, the boiler pressure climbs quickly, even with the firebox draught cut back, so here, a spectacular blow-off of steam was imminent!It's kind to share!
I met these delightfully graceful animals recently, while taking a short walk through Wollaton Park, Nottingham. They roam wild here, as they have done for over 400 years. They can run as a pack, while hardly making a sound!It's kind to share!
Black and white photography is often referred to as monochrome or in other words, one colour. However, monochrome doesn’t have to be black and white; it can be any single colour of your choice. In nature, one obvious choice is green. Here, I have used a wide lens opening (aperture) to give a shallow depth of field, so that the dock plant stands out in sharp focus against a blurred background.It's kind to share!
Sometimes, just sometimes… it’s worth getting up early. Because, if there’s anything I find more fascinating than flowers, it’s the combination of flowers, sunlight, and raindrops. Early yesterday morning, this trio came together.
Water is fascinating. Not only essential for life, but able to contribute beauty to so many other things. Frost patterns on leaves in winter, raindrops on flowers like this antirrhinum, clouds in England’s ever-changing skies… and so many more.
