This isn't the photo I planned to upload this week, but despite that I'm really happy with it.
My plan was to take a photo of some railway track with my girlfriend out of focus in the background balancing on the rail. Dangerous? Illegal? Well not not really, as there a section of disused railway from an old line not far from me, although it's been restored and trains do run on it, although not all year. So no transport police, just volunteers.
I went up to the signal box where there was someone doing maintenance on the levers and asked him if the trains were running. He said they don't run until March, which is exactly the sort of answer I wanted! I told him that I was an amateur photographer and would like to take some pictures on the track itself, since there was obviously no danger of an oncoming train.
He said that if I tripped and fell the HSE would be on them, so he didn't think it was a good idea, so no I couldn't take photos on the track.
Insert expletive "here"
So on the way home I remembered an area of the Irby Dales that I've always intended to photograph but never got round to it. The time of day was just about right and I got some wonderful golden light coming over the hills.
I've tweaked the levels of the sky a little to emphasise the clouds, but otherwise it's just vibrancy and clarity.
Got some good feedback last week and it was really appreciated. I'm still learning, so if you see a problem with the photo please feel free to comment. On the other hand if you think this image is amazing and you just have to have it hung on your living room wall, message me and we can talk prices, lol
