Best of the Cotswolds 5/7

When I posted my three week set of collages of the Cotswolds in August/September several of you said you would like to see several of the images full size so I make no apology for repeating those ones and a couple of my more favourite ones from the set.

This was taken at Cheltenham Racecourse station on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway and is one of my all time favourite railway shots I have taken.

You will no doubt detect the use of a bit of Topaz in this image.

For some time now I have been posting at weekends, including this coming one, but from next week I will cease posting at weekends for a while.  There are two reasons for this, firstly the large number of reasonable images needed and secondly it does seem that more Shutterchancers are taking breaks at the weekend and therefore, perhaps selfishly, the possible audience is considerably reduced.  I will of course log in and continue to look at others postings over the weekend periods as much as possible.

Wonderful railway shot, Brian.

Regarding the red note...the simple solution is to get out and take more shots! [grin]

Superb. Very good framing.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Antoine.
I must actually have a ride on this line. We have only visited Toddington! Nice shot Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill. It is quite a pleasant ride, and active people can walk into Cheltenham at the other end.

There's something very cozy about tunnels and under bridges for me, Brian. I like the "before" and "after" and the vanishing perspective. Good one.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, it was the bridge being a natural frame that i liked this one for.

Brian Walbey: I enjoyed the pictures from your visit here Chris, and it is amazing what they have done since taking over, there was almost nothing at Toddington at all. Good link by the way.
Superb capture Brian. Wonderfully framed!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.
Well I never knew this existed although it is just down the road.
Brian Walbey: Well now you do Chad you must get down there, you could perhaps meet Chris and Bill for a day out.

Good onr Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks vintage.
Very nice presentation, the train is framed nicely under the bridge.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Linda, it was the bridge that really attracted me to take this in the first place.
All in brick work..I bet that took some time to build..its beautiful though. A nicely framed shot of the puffer Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Ron.
Very nice shot!
I like the red "spots"!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much RS.
The run away train went under the bridge ... very nice Brian.
