I decided to go out for a walk where we live in Newark, Nottinghamshire in the heartland of middle England. It had recently snowed and though I was unable to go out and about in the countryside, I chose to take some lovely winter shots of our town. One place I have wanted to photograph is the view of the railway lines on the bridge leading out of town towards Lincoln. This is the spot I want to photograph the next steam train that makes it’s way through Newark, so I decided to see what the view just might be. Very soon after taking this shot, a thick fog rolled in and then it started to snow more. I shot this as a HDR to capture the dramatic afternoon sky and the lovely texture of the snow that covered the line.

This is a HDR image combining 3 bracketed shots using Photomatix Pro for Mac

Primarily a landscape photographer, my enjoyment of taking photos has developed from a young age. Originally from Texas, I now live in England and am surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery. I enjoy outdoor activities such as climbing, hiking, and camping. I am blessed with a wonderful wife and three terrific children. I am a strong Christian and I believe that my love of photography and any talent I posses in capturing images comes from God.

    Beautiful- draws the eye straight in!

  • I have always enjoyed taking photos of trains and railways. There is some magical quality to railways tracks when they are covered with snow. I appreciate the compliment.
