  1. Thanks Clicker, yes very simple and effective.
  2. Class 24 24054/D5054 'PHIL SOUTHERN' at Ramsbottom For a long time I didn't know what was going one when they swapped this bag type thing at Ramsbottom, it apparently contains a token and is given to someone on the train when it leaves Ramsbottom and is returned when the train comes back. Without the token trains can't leave for Rawtenstall, it stops two trains being on the same line travelling in opposite directions.
  3. That's quite impressive Simon, wouldn't mind a visit there myself.
  4. Thanks Clicker, I hope you do manage to get up here.
  5. It's the reflection from the white paint on the platform edge. The engine itself is black, I think they get washed and repainted on a regular basis so they always look their best.
  6. Thanks John, I could watch these little guys all day.
  7. I think he bought one, then sold it and then bought another one. I think the ones he bought were between £1200-£1500 each, which makes them a fairly expensive toy.
  8. A friend of mine who does off-roading motorcycle trail riding, in the UK and Bulgaria, often uses a drone as a way to capture footage to promote a business. I think you need a good and valid reason to have one other than capturing random stuff.
  9. I like that, it always amazes that words, music and images are all interconnected, I think anyone who is creative in any sort of way these sorts of connections happen spontaneously.
  10. To be honest I don't remember learning any Shakespeare at school, but you do pick things up and they remain forgotten until something triggers it.
  11. To be honest I should have known it would be busy there on Easter Sunday, seemed like every man and his dog were there, so the squirrels were being a bit elusive for the first hour. I could do with 4 pairs of hands when I go here, two to shake the nuts, which they running up for, and two to hold the camera and lens...
  12. Thanks Korky. In another few weeks the wood will be full of Ramsons Wild Garlic....
  13. They look like they've got a lot long tail than our wrens and you very rarely see them out in the open like this.
  14. Thanks Korky, I must admit I didn't see him when I was taking the photograph, it was only when I got home and was looking through the days images that I spotted him and for some odd reason the Macbeth quote 'Is this a dagger which I see before me' came to mind.
  15. Thanks Gareth, yes, I think they are just at their peak - it will be the ramsons next. Thanks Clicker, it's a good spot locally to see them. Thanks Kobione. Thanks John, I used my Tokina 11-20mm wide angle for this, so there was a lot of empty foreground, so a letterbox crop seemed the way to go.
  16. Thanks Polly, this was taken today at Ramsbottom station, my Mum was sat on one of the benches just behind the steam train whilst I took this picture... The ELR also have a very similar loco numbered 80097, which was at Barry scrapyard for 19 years and then took another 33 years to restore. I did a post about it here:
  17. Is this a steam train which I see before me, The engine toward my hand? Come, let me clutch thee. I have thee not, and yet I see thee still. Art thou not, fatal vision, sensible To feeling as to sight? or art thou but A engine of the mind, a false creation, Proceeding from the heat-oppressed brain? Adapted from Macbeth by Bill Shakespeare....
  18. Possibly, but many butterflies sort of hibernate over winter, I once found a tortoiseshell in my house on New Years day, they find somewhere sheltered and out of the way from predators and they wait for the weather to warm up.
  19. A Speckled Wood and a Red Admiral from this weekend, two that I missed Tortoiseshell and Brimstone Both look to be last years adults that have over wintered.
  20. Another week, snap, twiddle, post...

    Face to Face

    It works for me Gareth, I like the way everything bar the opposite figure is out of focus.
