photoblog image Snibston Discovery Park 5/10

Snibston Discovery Park 5/10

My Camera Club had the run of the outside area at Snibston Discovery Park, Coalville, particularly the old coalmine area, closed in 1983, having been opened in 1832, for a shoot one evening recently.

The old railway line mentioned yesterday runs through the site and down through the gates in the far distance towards the centre of Coalville.  There are quite a few old dilapidated wagons standing about.

 

I've had this printed for a Club competition and called it "Final Resting Place."

Excellent colours in this, Brian. I don't think that wagon will ever run again so your camera club title is very appropriate.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Alan.
One word Brian ''Superb''
Brian Walbey: I'm blushing with pleasure at your praise Richard.

I expect these are beyond redemption Brian
Brian Walbey: I think the next move would be to the scrap yard Chris.

"Final Resting Place" is the perfect title for this, Brian. A photographer's paradise.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie. I rckon you two girls would have a feast day here given the opportunity we club members had.
Great title! Lovely bit of decay
Brian Walbey: Some more coming next week Bill.
love the weariness of the wood a lot, it shows life.
Brian Walbey: And sadly it also shows the death of this old wagon as well Chantal.
Just superb Brian. Well done indeed!
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Richard.
Waiting to be tarted up I suppose.
Brian Walbey: I think its too far gone for that Chad.
Nice treatment, Brian - a touch of the pseudo hdr?
Brian Walbey: Good old Topaz again Tom, thanks for your comment.
A good title Brian. Definitely the end of the line for this one
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet, I don't think it will go much further.

Great colour and detail Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks vintage.
It looks happy in its resting place, super detail in its rotting wood and the rust, lovely shot Brian smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Linda.

Love the treatment Brian, very nice indeedsmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tracy.
Great treatment, these kind of textures really can take a HDR look, even if you achieved it with other software like Topaz
Brian Walbey: It was a reasonable picture straight Marion but I agree with you, this gained by using the Topaz plug-in.
think thats been there a while, great shot, love the angle and dof
Brian Walbey: Thanks Derek.
I think your title "Final Resting Place" is about perfect for this.

The wagon is being almost absorbed by nature.

It's one of those pictures that's so nice, and so good, it could be played with. I wonder what it might look like with the wagon and the immediate greenery selected in colour, with the rest (more modern) in mono.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ellie. Time allowing I will have a play as you suggest, at the moment I am ploughing through my 598 images from North wales last week.
Wow, this is good! I feel as though I could climb on board. Lovely detail. (:o)
Brian Walbey: many thanks Rosalyn.
