Great Northern Railway 85 at Killarney.

The Railway Preservation Society of Ireland operated a steam charter last week using former Great Northern Railway engine  85 Merlin.

Rich afternoon sun and a colourful train made for easy photos at Killarney on 3 September 2018.

These views were among the digital photos I exposed with my FujiFilm XT1.

I was playing with scale and focus while working with the light to make the most of shadows.

Which is your favorite?

    No. 1 with its high contrast certainly expresses the heat and sweat of this mechanical beast and its caretakers. Also channels the Art Deco era travel advertising posters of European Railways.

  3. Both the first and last photos get my vote.
