The evocative location of Spurn point on the Humber estuary.

I used a 6 stopper ND filter to soften the foreground grasses.

For Macro Mondays theme 'Dutch Angle'.

Trying out this technique proved trickier than I had anticipated - the feather was set up so the end portion was more or less horizontal in order to place the water droplet, so when the camera was tilted the water droplet would look to be in an impossible position. This took numerous attempts as the droplet kept rolling off or falling through the tiny delicate feather - highly frustrating! But eventually I finally got a water droplet to balance in such a way that I got a pleasing refraction effect inside the droplet. This was shot as a focus stack of 24 images.

No feathers were harmed in the making of this photograph, but my neck got very sore...

On the night of the 12th September Crewe station resonated with the sound of an English electric 16 CVT power unit embodied within 40145.
She was working the 1918 Skipton to Crewe holding sidings ECS.
She was booked to pass through Crewe on the down through line, I waited on the north end of platform 6 just to confirm her route. As feared she looked to be running through the line adjacent to platform 12, I legged it lover the footbridge and got three quarters of the way down platform 12 before realising she was running into platform 11 separated from my view by the wall. She screeched to a halt and the night area was filled with the whistling of her turbos echoing around the station. Rather than wait on platform 12 for a poorly lit shot of her departing I grabbed this shot through the famous hole in the wall as she drew to a halt and then ran back across the footbridge and legged it up platform 11, to get several shots before she departed into the night.
