Rudyard Woodland Track

Rudyard Lake Steam Railway line through woodland
(Canon EOS 60D, Sigma 17-70mm @ 22mm, 1/400s @ f/8.0 ISO400)
The track for the 10.25" gauge Rudyard Lake Steam Railway runs alongside the old trackbed of the North Staffordshire Railway branch line from Uttoxeter to North Rode near Macclesfield. This line was closed by Beeching in the 1960s but a few miles has been reopened the other side of Leek as the Churnet Valley Railway. I like the sun dappled track way in this photo.


  1. I like the mist in the background. It makes it look as if I've just missed the train. The dappled shadows are a bit subtle for me. I would have given them a shove. Horses for courses, it is a lovely image.

  2. Good "leading in" to this photo and a sense of "light at the end of the tunnel"!
    I'm passing on a blog award to you. If you want to have a look and perhaps pick it up, you'll find it here.
