As the end of the year approaches we start to look forward to the next and one of the things I’m looking forward to is my ‘Photography Friday’ outings with my friend/partner in crime Rachel…

We’re definitely planning a return to the Lumsdale Valley near Matlock in Derbyshire to photograph the industrial ruins and the waterfalls again.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Cool Yule or whatever celebration floats your boat at this time of year…

A Christmas tree image from four years ago, captured at London St Pancras International railway station… If memory serves I steadied the camera by pressing it tightly up against one of the pillars that supports the upper level of the station.

2000 soft toys were provided by The Disney Store and when the ‘tree’ was taken down they were donated to KIDS, a charity which cares for disabled children, young people and their families.

* ‘and to all, a good night…’

A shot from the digital archives tonight…

An unidentified class 377 ‘Electrostar’ electric multiple unit crosses Worthing Road at Angmering with the 19.32 Southern service from Portsmouth & Southsea (the 20.18 from Angmering) to Brighton on 20 May 2015. I didn’t have a tripod with me so rested my camera on top of a handy fence post and hoped for the best!

This pic cropped up tonight while I was looking for something else entirely, my archives definitely need a good sort out!
