This man and his grandson were waiting the arrival of this steam excursion train to TeKuiti.
This shows the train slowing down, I was on the pedestrian overbridge.
I was to one side of the tracks to avod being covered in smoke and steam.

Hi Pete,
a great view of the train, you are obviously an experienced train-spotter. I see one of the crew are keeping an eye on you

A wonderful shot with superb mood and drama seen in the work, Pete!

The light is the best part of the picture which brings certain special feeling in here.
Colors are original and contrasts within the image are praiseworthy.
Well caught sharpness and focus on the engine of the train.

Kind regards,

  • Great

Hi Peter.

Steam is a very good attraction, I used to love standing over the footbridge and the express rushing through, the smell was something speacial, such a lovely memory. The image shows the steam drifting to the right, were you standing on the right too as you may have been covered also. Impressive agle showing much interest here, I like the huge headlamp glowing. tfs

Hi Peter,
Perfect sharpness on this steam locomotive from such a high POV. I like the man with his grandson waiting for the train to go on an excursion. A whole story is told in this presentation. Good light management and an agreeable square frame to fit!
My best regards,

Francis Xavier
