D8137 Cheltenham Racecourse 4 November 2006

A superb glint effect and a perfect end to an excellent day's photography on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway during the Diesel Gala on 4 November 2006. D8137 accelerates away from Cheltenham Racecourse with the 15:50 service to Toddington., with buildings of the racecourse prominent in the background. Despite the use of a deep lens hood, it was necessary to take this picture one-handed, with the other hand used as an additional shade to stop the setting sun reaching the lens.
