60009 The Union of South Africa

Here is the LNER Pacific class 60009 Union of South Africa locomotive pulling another Cotswold Venturer service from London Paddington to Worcester – here seen between Shipton and Kingham stations – a panning shot on a slowish shutter to give the impression of the speed – of the 18 shots (3fps continuous mode), only about 4 are usable – it’s tricky to take panning shots – I should have practiced on the regular trains first – However, I am pleased with this one – another glorious sight!

I did convert to black and white too – I was thinking that there was too much green (grass, locomotive and trees) – almost gives the impression that it is moving faster here, but needs some extra tweaking – a bit dark around the locomotive – more of a ‘work in progress’
