The photo challenge from the Daily Post is Optimistic. Anyone deciding to go on a long outing by public transport in winter must be optimistic. I made a trip to meet with other writers. For these photos I was using my Xperia E4 phone. The photos were more successful than attempts from train windows with my E1. Interestingly I find that the colours come out differently depending which phone I use.
I’ll let the captions tell the story.
Only three days later this journey would not have been possible. A storm damaged the sea defences with the result that trains had to be replaced by road travel for part of the route. The first two photos were taken on that part of the line.
