Rail travel from a different era; we live near a railway that runs steam trains as a tourist attraction and they keep the stations in a style in keeping to the era of the trains. I thought it appropriate to treat the photographs in the same manner.

Train under steam approaching the station.  Waiting.  I hope that they're not needed.  Station structure, always worth looking up.  Platform stuck in time.  Steaming into the sun.  Train track abstract.  Approaching the station.

Photos below taken in February 2003 at Beacon Fell in Lancashire

The first spring lamb on 2003.  Spring snowdrops growing at the roadside.  A glimpse of daylight moon as a backdrop for hang gliders.  Low winter sun catching the water.  Low winter sun causing some attractive lens flare.  Wooland makes the most interesting shapes and textures.  My boys, I'm not sure who is the least mature.  Wide angle taken in late afternoon and showing the moon.  Late afternoon winter sun filtering through trees.  An early morning shot of the moon.  The river Irwell at sundown.

Fireworks; I took these at a local village organised display. I'd not photographed fireworks before, so had no idea how easy it would be, or what settings to use. I hadn't really prepared for it, just jumped in the car with my camera and guessed at some likely settings. The display was almost over when I got there, but I still managed to capture a few and my guesses proved just about right, most of these were middle frames of bursts, as I followed the track of the rocket as it exploded. The starburst in the first shot was just plain lucky.

Some of my early favourites, taken with the Fujifilm 2800Zoom

Crummockwater in Cumbria, taken in November 2002.  My sister did a charity abseil and I did my bit by recording it for posterity!  Dob Gill running into Thirlmere in Cumbria, October 2002.  We met Star Wars actor Jeremy Bulloch at a signing session.  A photo from my favourite spot on the shore of Ullswater.
Tarn Hows on a particularly calm autumn day.  An amusing road side sign in Cumbria.  A delicate wall fern looked wonderful against the grey slate. The wonderful textures of a monkey puzzle tree.
