Archive Post: The Last Train Out Of Hyndland
Another photo from my archives, taken one year ago today. I’d been thinking about doing a shot up near Hyndland train station for a while before finally finding a night to head up there and scope out a composition.
Most of the trackside area up next to the road was fenced off but I managed to find a pretty steep bank I could (barely) climb up that was open to the rail line (the trip back down – most of it on my ass – was particularly, erm, interesting…)
I bagged five or six shots, with just the odd passing train and a few lurking foxes for company, then called it a night.
Next time I turned on my D700 it malfunctioned, just two weeks prior to a 21-day trip across the US. It didn’t get fixed in time so my D40 and V1 had to suffice Stateside. Anyway, this was a pretty good last shot to capture before the D700 went haywire.Follow @RobJBC
