Photography to me is about the subject, and how many different ways you can photograph it to capture the best angle, the best lighting, the best of the subject.
To do this, a lot of it is about travelling to the places that offer the most fascinating subjects. A lot of the time it’s difficult to find time to go to these places, and they can become once in a lifetime opportunities. But there are a few places that are easy to get to, and wonderful places to visit!
North Yorkshire Moors Railway
One of the 6 surviving A4 Pacific Engines, Bittern was designed by Nigel Gresley for the London and North Eastern Railway in 1935. Built in 1937.
This shot was taken during a visit to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, a steam preservation line running from Pickering to Whitby. Bittern was a guest engine in 2012 visiting this fabulous line.
For photographers, the NYMR offers so many opportunities for enthusiasts, amateurs and professionals alike.
For me, photographing Steam Trains is a real favourite past time, and I really wish I had more time to do it.
