Yes, It’s late I know. It’s 22:43 and I’ve only just knocked off after a marathon work day and scanning session. I was sorely tempted to venture out today as we’ve actually had a reasonable amount of sunshine. Instead, I just got stuck into paperwork, phone calls and a long session scanning old rail slides and then (to break the monotony) a batch of Australian travel slides. The rail images I’ve been scanning date from 1992 and the reason some of them have never seen the light of day before is because they require quite a bit of retouching in Photoshop to remove scratches and blemishes, so it’ll be a while yet before the most seriously damaged ones appear on my website – although many others have and you can find them in the India and Sri Lanka rail galleries (just click on the country names).

I’ve another busy day tomorrow which includes a trip to an Osteopath in Huddersfield (another story) so I’m going to be brief tonight and go almost straight on to the picture of the day. I took this shot of the Balconies in the spectacular Grampian national park in Victoria, Australia on the 8th January 1999. I only wish we’d had visibility and temperatures like this here in the Pennines today!

I’ve a favour to ask…
If you enjoy reading this blog, please click on an advert or two. You don’t have to buy anything you don’t want to of course (although if you did find something that tickled your fancy that would be fab!), but the revenue from them helps to cover some of the cost of maintaining this site – and right now (because of Covid), us freelances need all the help that we can get. Remember, 99% of the pictures used in my blogs can be purchased as prints from my other website –  https://paulbigland.zenfolio.com/

Thank you!
