photoblog image Waiting for the Train

Waiting for the Train

The second of three shots which feature my wife Maureen in a suitable spot in the composition. This was taken at Carrog in Wales at the opposite end of the Llangollen Steam Railway from the town of the same name.

This really is a delightful journey through the Dee valley on a nice day, if you are ever that way make it an essential outing.

Thank you for sharing the information, trains and railway stations are very appealing to me...I am often on the railway tracks to just look at the trains.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid, I remember your recent photo taken dangerously at track level. At least you are still here for us to enjoy your company.

Your wife fits in this image just perfectly, Brian. It's actually quite idyllic for me since I LOVE riding on the train, especially in Europe.
Brian Walbey: This little station is right in the middle of the countryside Ginnie and when the train has gone it is so quiet and peaceful.
I always enjoy train pictures Brian and this is no exception. Funnily enough I've actually posted one for tomorrow!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, I look forward to seeing your train tomorrow.

I hope Ginnie does not think this typical of our rail journeys or stations in the UK! This was from the "the good old days"; if you have to have preserved diesels, this set is quite attractive and you've caught the whole scene very well. Great nostalic feel.
Brian Walbey: Definitely "the good old days" Alan, these days they don't run to time so frequently I believe! Glad you like the picture, it is a nice journey to make.

yes going along with Alan's comment it does have a nostalgic feel to it Brian, lovely composition of the scene also, love lone figures, "i know there is two" 1 prominent one though in photo's in general they for me add so much more to the image, intrigue for one wondering what their thinking etc, nice work Briansmile

It all looks so very civilised doesn't it? Brings back memories of my daily journey to/from school.
Brian Walbey: I didn't go to school by train Ellie but at my junior school the trains ran alongside the playground, a big distraction for young boys!
The place looks peaceful and idyllic.
