Hi Mike. 

 

Lovely to see Sheep Lane out and about. Looks splendid.

First outing today for Sheep Lane in the frozen North. Very well received with the B4 and 700 doing the main honours, and as with Rob an overabundance of wagons to choose from. More tomorrow then Spennymoor in 2 weeks time.

That's not a big sheep. This is a big sheep:

Hi Rob, something I've been wondering about. That chrome effect you have in the photos above, is that the lighting or processing? I remember you mentioned Chris Nevard's photo processing techniques before, is that what causes the effect?

Hi Mikkel. 

 

I have to say I'm not entirely sure. I think it's a combination of both. 

 

All the photos on here ( taken by myself) are taken on my phone under the layout lighting which is a mixture of both warm and cool white LED strip lighting. 

 

The photos are then edited, to varying degrees using the Snapseed photo editing app. 

 

By applying various filters, degrees of colour saturation and sharpening the images you can vary the results. 

 

Play, basically..........

Thanks Rob. In Corel Paintshop there's a 'clarity' feature which gives a similar effect. I've also seen it used on real-life railway photography over on Flickr, where it is sometimes overdone in my opinion.

Ramming things in never did anyone any good, Dudders. 

 

That's how things get bent.........

Morning all. 

 

It appears I  have long day ahead.  Off to work in a bit and then back home this afternoon to load up and head down the motorway this evening. 

 

Mutton is just about ready to go to Taunton. Sadly, I've not been been able to do everything I wanted to do with the layout ahead of the show but I think it's quite presentable. 

 

The weekend  does rather look like being a bit an adventure.........which has already started.

 

In order to transport Mutton, field modifications have been required to Sheep One, my Vauxhall Corsa. Mutton's usual transport is somewhat bigger but not available for the weekend. Therefore seats have been stripped out to accomodate said layout for the trip West.  

 

I'm obviously, looking forward to seeing/meeting as many Muttoneers as possible over the next couple of days.  Do feel free to stop, chat, extract the urine and put the world to rights. 

 

Le monde est ton homard. 

 

Rob.

Hope you have a relatively peaceful day Rob, and a great time at the show.

Shame you can't borrow one of the company vehicles. 

 

Have a great weekend.
