Photography Competition

When you're in the Railway Land, what catches your eye?

Is it the red of a berry against a winter twig, is it the way the sun breaks through the clouds or the twinkle of a raindrop on a branch?  Is it the spikiness of a teasel or the spread of a seagull's wing against a flat blue sky.

Photography is about looking and looking and looking again. When you see something that makes you feel happy or surprised or just pulls your gaze, whether it's a pattern, a colour, a patch of light or a shape, photograph that.
