Rural idyll
22nd October 2016

This last week saw me spend three days dodging cow pats in farmers fields and with some patience, waiting for clouds to pass. that said, the weather for mid October was exceptional really – very warm and pleasant.

This was a visit to a quiet relatively unspoilt corner of Wales around Llanfair Caereinion and the Afon Banwy. A rural idyll through which a narrow gauge railway runs and unlike the others in Wales, it served a rural community rather than the heavier industries such as slate.

Unfortunately, this was to be its downfall, the small farming communities it passed by could not support the running of the railway, with the passenger service only running from 1903 to 1931. The goods traffic survived longer until 1956.

Thankfully, the railway has survived as it passed in to preservation to become a tourist attraction.

So last week saw recreations of the railway’s past, firstly heading back to the freight only days of British Railways in the early 1950’s and then a hark back to the 1920’s as the passenger days.

Thought provoking
22nd October 2016

Back in September, I embarked on a crazy weekend which involved a 728 miles round trip in 47 hours which took me to the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Museum, East Kirkby for the opportunity to photograph a Lancaster bomber at night.

Backed up by some resilient and patient re-enactors, the scene was set to create some thought provoking images.

As was all too often the case during WW2. airmen, young men, would head out east over the North Sea never to return

The RAF lost a total of 55,573 killed out of a total of 125,000 aircrew: a death rate of almost 45% percent. 8,403 were wounded in combat & 9,838 became prisoners of war.

A Night to Remember
21st February 2016
After a very grey damp day with misty rain swirling about, finally and as per the weather forecast, it started to lift as the daylight came to an end. And so to an evening's photography at Buckfastleigh Station on the South Devon Railway.

A splendid time capsule of a long lost branch line station on the Great Western Railway was created on the platform. The station's mood was transformed as the dark descended and the lights came on
