Nice photo of the sunrise on 20th Februrary for today’s photo. One of those occasions when it was so lucky to have the camera ready AND be in the right place at the right time. I took a series of shots as the clouds and light changed, but the aim was to get the clouds to appear to come out of the electricity pylon and a frame around the best of the clouds. See what you think. As the light was changing so fast (and the clouds were also moving fast due to the strong winds aloft) then there was not time to set things up properly, but the results were fine. Hopefully the time-lapse of the moving clouds will be equally dramatic. So much fun with a camera !!!
and another photo out of the archives….night train from Trondheim, Norway to Oslo……This was one of my first night shots with the Fuji X-E1….

Thought for the day…..” Why is there only one monopolies commission?”
A photo today that looks like a black & white photo, but is actually a colour photo, but one where there is not a lot of colour!!! It was taken early morning in Switzerland in Interlaken, with a morning fog from the nearby lakes. A weekend special stream train was passing through on its way up to the resort of Grindelwald, and I was just lucky to be at the station when it was there. Being Switzerland, even the steam trains run exactly to time!!! About 347 million people use Swiss railways and its 760 stations each year. There are over 3000km of track, making getting around Switzerland very easy.
