People tell me I should take pictures which sell, but I feel I would be selling my soul. Instead I keep on taking the pictures which I enjoy taking. I will probably never get rich from photography, or even make a decent living from it, but at least I will have left authentic images which might just be of of interest to someone after I have gone!

    Super picture, David!

  • Thanks David, it was a super trip with King Class “King George V” taking over later. This was in the very early days of steam returning to the main lines!
