Steaming towards sunset - 61306 LNER B1 'Mayflower' and 35018 Southern Railway Merchant Navy Class 'British India Line' double head the Winter Cumbrian Mountain Express and steaming towards sunset as they cross Batty Moss passing over the central pier of Ribblehead Viaduct on 2 February 2019.

Another take from this memorable scene from a few weeks ago; the chance combination of not only a steam train passing over Ribblehead at sunset, but the rare opportunity of it being a double header too.

Ribblehead Viaduct, Yorkshire Dales National Park

Driving up the A82 towards Fort William always without fail forces you to make a decision at this point, do I call in at this little spot for the umpteenth thousandth time and get the same shot (or similar) as I have previously, or do I just carry on and get to where I'm headed in good time....?

In this case 4 of us were headed to Skye and could have really done with pushing on towards the Island, but one of our party had never been to this location before so there's no way we were going to go past, I think I wanted him to see it as much as he wanted to !

The conditions on the way up had been just incredible, freezing cold weather with a good layer of hoar frost on all the trees and some superb light to pick out all those little frosty details.

We had to walk down from the A82 as the road had been closed off down to Glen Etive due to the severe ice and snow, the scene when we got to this spot was just a real wow moment, I'd seen it in snow before but never like this, and the nornally gushing falls were redcued to a mere a slivver of water trickling over the rocky edge through the thick ice, the big tree to the left now taking on en entirely new form with it's glistening frosty coating, a nice bit of sunlight creeeping in from the side and absolutely no wind whatsoever. About as good conditions as we could have wanted, even the blue sky wasn't an issue as the wispy cloud brushing over the Buachaille showed up really well against the backdrop.

The scene was a complete transformation from anything I'd seen before and absolutely 100% worth a revisit to get the 'classic' shot, although i fairness this really doesn't look like any other I've got here, this one's getting printed and going next to the other 2 from this location on my wall.

I had the opportunity to visit the Elan Valley in Mid Wales on Tuesday, which seemed promising after all the rain we have been having.
For those who haven't had the chance to go, a series of dams were built about 120 years ago flooding the Elan Valleys in order to provide drinking water for Birmingham and the Black Country. This is the lowest of the series of dams, Caban Goch, and was designed to become a giant waterfall at times of excess rainfall, as the extra water spills over the top and runs down the 120 foot face.
I have to say, those Victorian engineers did their job amazingly well, and the Caban Coch in full flow is such a magnificent sight.
For any Togs thinking of visiting, the good people at the Visitor Centre have set up a live feed of the dam, see you can see if it is in flood before setting off. www.elanvalley.org.uk/live
