Steam Trains…….

I have been going through the photographs I took recently on our holidays to Butlins, Minehead.

We popped along to the West Somerset Railway where there were various old steam trains, it felt like going back in time as we walked along the platform .

I am not a train fan or anything but it was great when I asked the driver if I could get aboard the engine and take some shots and he was  very happy for me to do so.

I processed these in Aperture and used HDR efex plugin to try to extract the detail out of the shots (single raw files not bracketed)

Here is a link to the railway…  http://www.west-somerset-railway.co.uk/
