DECEMBER 2020 GALLERY - LAST DAY TO DAY

Post by philipy » Fri Oct 02, 2020 1:35 pm

Egor ( E.V.) has proposed the theme of "Autumn garden railway" for the next Gallery, thanks Egor.

Plenty of scope for atmospheric pictures so lets get them rolling in please. (Quick reminder: They don't need to have been specially taken, something you have squirreled away from last year or the one before, or the one before that, is perfectly valid as long as it fits the theme).

Rules as usual. Closing date for entries is 10th December to leave little space around Christmas for voting.

As you all know, I take this photographic competition very seriously and treat each subject proposal with the greatest respect. I try to interpret the title and enter an appropriate picture to match the subject. So here is 'Autumn' on my garden railway.....

Autumn, 23, from Swindon, has suitable bodywork measuring 45-32-45 which makes her the perfect Brand Ambassador for our hobby.
We just can't wait for Autumn to come around.

Just a reminder that the Gallery entries close in 4 weeks time and we only have ONE entry so far!
Get those shutter fingers working!

In the interests of keeping the competition spirit alive and following on from Philipy's theme, here's an offering from the Charnwood Forest Light Railway taken this morning on the curve just above Anstey station. Not the most inspired piece of photography you will ever come across (nor the finest part of the CFLR!) but at least it's an entry!

Great pic Andrew, and a fine looking Konrad. That cow-catcher is going to earn its keep with the autumn leaves.

Ill throw my hat in the ring. Its a shot from the first few years of the NEVR back in 2016 when the line was just a circle of track, its certainly come a long way since.

My thinking too. A warm Autumnal colour, too.

I don't have many Autumnal photos, so I have looked through my achieves and come up with this one...
This was taken on our very first FWLR line in November....Hope it's okay for you guys and your very high standards....
