THAT'S what I call a train ! and an incredibly beautiful photograph !
(Easy to tell that you are a pro, Oy)
Carr Mill Dam St Helens
Who would ever guess this photo was only taken a couple of days ago? Fantastic photo!
photo shop job this funny the last time i did a track patrol over this bridge there was over head wires and that was only last week
Cullie - yes - photoshop job. Looks much better without the gantry and overhead wires don't you think? The bridge looks better without the graffiti too. :)
very observant mick.Car mill stated on the caption too.!!!
Fantastic image which really suits the monochrome. Cullie, does it really matter that that overhead wires have been removed??? Even with the wires left in, this would still show an extremely high level of photographic technique - and photoshop skills.
Brilliant photo Dave
Oy,you're a top man as far as photography is concerned...without a doubt.
Great photo Dave. The overhead wires are the downside of the electrification of the Liverpool line, photoshop is the only way of getting rid of them. It certainly looks better without them....and the graffiti.
Thanks for the photo Dave, Simply Brilliant!
I agree with Maureen. Thanks Dave, love your work.
Top notch photo, Dave. Very well done.
Who cares if it is not actually within the Wigan boundaries, it has always been known as a local beauty spot.
Looks like a 1950's photo.
Isn't he just one of the best. Quite, looks like the 1950s,no graffiti.
Overcooked,tell it like it is Dave.
This train could have been taken at Bryn...in Wigan.
Thanks for the kind words those that like the pic :) Can't please 'em all and I don't try. It's my pic and I did it my way. If you like that - beltin'. If you don't - that's ok too :) If you want if differently - go take one how you like it :)
It's not a picture Dave, it's more like a painting.
You know my view on B and W, Dave. Would like to see it in colour. I agree with removing electrification - how long does it take?
DS - Thanks - that was my intention :)
Ernest - took about 20min. Here it is in colour just for you :)
Thanks very much, Dave.
To me, it`s far better in colour.
Very good photo Dave, overhead power cables and gantries with steam trains don't go well. This is a marvelous photograph done in B/W, It's like going back 50 years.
I'm sure the people from St Helens would echo these lovely comments.
