'The Christmas White Rose' & 'The Christmas Yorkshireman' 22-12-2012 [02:57]
The Weather Conditions were a Photographers worst nightmare: Strong Winds, Driving Rain, you name it, they were all forecast for Saturday 22nd December 2012, when 2 steam hauled railtours converged on York for the last time this year. There were still a few people though who braved the conditions to go out and catch 2 of the last steam hauled tours of 2012. The Choice of location was paramount in this case, and I was lucky enough to avoid the strong wind, however, road traffic noise took its place during the 5043 shot, in the form of a silver Corsa and an extremely noisy Land Rover that came at the wrong moment. When I arrived at Broad Lane bridge in Frickley (just south of Moorthorpe & just west of South Elmsall), The rain was falling heavily as forecast and it was difficult to see to the other end of the mile long straight section looking south towards Thurnscoe. However, at about 1130, the rain eased slightly and the line ahead became easier to spot, and in just nice time. at 1140, running 20 minutes early, 5043 came storming round the bend in the distance, just as the afformentioned road vehicles went past on the bridge. Still subject to platform speed restrictions in some places, Moorthorpe was obviously included in this and 5043 shut off just as it hit the upgrade to Moorthorpe, to make up for this though, the driver gave a nice blast on the whistle just before the bridge. I was completely frozen to the core when 60009 eventually appeared 90 minutes later running ...

Playing Tarzan 1080p RANDOM un-edited shots [a Wocky Adventure] [10:09]
#001a RANDOM out-takes - Sat, 22 Dec 2012 - And now... for something... completely different. Some fun activity I got up to today at the Storms River Bridge and Tsitsikamma Forest along the "Garden Route" in South Africa for about 3.5 hours. This activity takes place in a large nature reserve with trees as old as 600 years old at heights 20m~30m above the ground. You move at relatively high speed from tree to tree via a metal cable. No holes are drilled, no nails are driven into the trees. All platforms make use of sophisticated tension system to sustain the people on them and not damage the trees. Very eco-friendly system.
