Freight Train and Foliage

I love all these urban juxtapositions of nature and engineering 🙂

Sunrise from the overnight train…

I very recently travelled overnight from Inverness to London on the Caledonian Sleeper, sitting up all night in the seated coach rather than splashing out on the relative luxury of a bunk-bed in a compact cabin, so I happened to be awake early to see the sun rise over the English countryside.

It’s surprisingly difficult to take a non-blurry image through the double-glazed windows of a moving train rattling down the tracks in the dim early morning light with nothing more than a decidedly mediocre phone camera, all the while avoiding power lines and poles and other such trackside objects obscuring the view.

I’m just happy at having a reasonably straight horizon and not too much glare and flare 🙂
