photoblog image Rothley Station

Rothley Station

2009 Retrospective - I had a number of images I took last year that I would have liked to have posted on SC but time didn't allow.  For the time being I am posting a number of these, in no particular order, which I hope you will enjoy.

This was taken last summer during a visit to Rothley station on the restored Great Central Railway that runs between Loughborough and Leicester.  There is an excellent tea room off to the right called Ellis's, which is open most of the time even when trains aren't running, which was the case on this day.

At least I had the chance to wander about with the camera to my hearts content.  As you will note this has had a bit, perhaps too much, of a twiddle.


A friend of mine in my Camera Club puts some good images on his Flickr site and this one was in a competition at the Club last week.  I particularly liked it and thought you might too.

You know, I really like the processing here, it makes it look kind of like a model set.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Alex.

IMHO, Brian, it's delightful. grin It's so unlike anything "usual," I find myself staring at it.

This is just a large version of a model railway Brian.
Brian Walbey: I suppose it does look a bit like that Chad, thanks.
You won't believe this Brian but I have never been to this station ... I think a quick visit would be good.

Brian Walbey: Make it the last weekend in March Richard, they have a big gala on then, lots of people, your forte. I'm really surprised you haven't been here.

A lovely remonder of the gold days of English railways. The tea room sounds my sort of place; none of these fancy Starbucks/Nero's/Costa places!
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely little tea room Alan on a sunny day.
A very pretty little station Brian. Good shot
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Janet.

What a lot to look at, lovely light, Really good Brian smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Linda.
Bit of hdr on this one, Brian? VEry crisp, in any event!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom, I used Topaz to give it a pseudo HDR effect.
Nicely enhanced Brian..A good POV..were you on the track.
Brian Walbey: I was on the track Ron, no trains were running that day.
delightful Briansmile
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Tim.
A grand little station Brian, and one that gets crowded when the Galas are on. Only one comment really, I would have turned the yellow down so reducing the bright green off the grass. A fine scene none the less.
Brian Walbey: Thanks for the tip Les, I actually felt the colours needed something, now I know what.
looks a nice place and a nice tea room, cant ask for much more, looked at the other photo, very good
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Derek.
