During the first weekend August 2011, I once more attended the Cromford Steam Rally in Derbyshire, where I met up with some old friends and made some new ones. Once again we were lucky and blessed with a lovely day as well as an excellent turnout.
This is a shot of the gearing of one of the many traction engines there, created from 3 images with Photomatix and the a Topaz filter.
