66849 Denchworth (Circourt Bridge) 14 December 2013

Fantastic lighting at Circourt Bridge, Denchworth on 14 December 2013. What could be better than full winter sun, with really dark clouds in the background just as the train you have been waiting for is due! 66849 Wylam Dilly heads westwards with the 6Z63 11:00 Tilbury Riverside to Llanwern steel empties. This superb lighting was not expected, as the forecast had predicted a cloudy afternoon. Consequently I was at Denchworth Bridge (just visible in the background), which is not ideal in the winter if the sun is out. However, I could see the blue sky approaching, so made a quick dash to this spot, arriving as the sun appeared, although clearly to the east it is still just a little dark!
