7.5.08 66156 6M20 Drax - Kirkby Thore, Blea Moor Tunnel - Blea Moor Tunnel
I've always liked the shot at the north end of Blea Moor Tunnel but I always thought that it would look best from a lower angle. I decided to attempt it early this year before the location becomes a midge-fest. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out, usualy I don't like a large area of shade in the foreground but I think it helps highlight the loco in this instance. 66156 exits Blea Moor Tunnel and emerges into a peaceful Dentdale on the 6M20 Drax - Kirkby Thore loaded gypsum. This shot was published in the 'Line by Line - Settle & Carlisle' book by Martin Buck.
