    Nice shot! Are you a train spotter?

  3. Erica Price says:

    Like that – very popular with my boy too.

  4. Speeeeeeeed! Love it x

  5. geekmummy says:

    That’s really good – the contrast of the moving train and the stationary background is really well done 🙂

      Try it. You need: a footbridge (or similar vantage point) over a busyish railway line, an evening, and a camera that can use a slow shutter speed. Evening really is a fantastic time for photography.

    My eldest (5yrs!) is a huge train fan and we have spent many happy hours in the National Railway Museum at York. he has finally converted me and I am as much a train tart as he is. Fantastic picture!

  8. I totally just went ‘buuuuuh-nuhhh’ in my head (that’s a train noise, btw) (like a train horn, not the noise it makes going along) (is it called a train horn?) (I’ll shut up now)

  9. fireflyphil says:

    Yes a horn, although trackside signs usually display ‘W’ (whistle.) Quaint, isn’t it? But that twin tone is well-known to me…
