59004 Woodborough 10 November 2010

59004 Paul A Hammond passes the autumnal tints at Woodborough on 10 November 2010, as it heads west with the 7C77 12:40 Acton to Merehead Mendip Rail stone empties. This illustrates the problems of photography in the autumn and winter. Although the lighting is much better than in the summer, even the smallest cutting shades the line as the sun is so low. Here, just a tiny bank covered with brambles is enough to start shading the track, and with the shadows reaching the wheels, it would soon be time to switch to a longer lens.
