Loco 5526

Taking photos in the gloom
March 2010

Six months after buying my Canon DSLR I am still marveling at its ability to take good photo's in truly dreadful lighting conditions.

My recent tour of the engine sheds of the South Devon Railway provided an opportunity to try and photograph the inside of a cab with only a glimmer of light filtering in from the soot encrusted skylights above.

The dull orange light played beautifully on the copper pipework and red and black paint.

I have no idea what type of engine this is - it is number  5526.
