Hi Richard,

Ah, ha, yes, "Sir Tom" - that was the name of the steam locomotive, Iain was the engineer and Shep was the lovely dog!

It's taken you a while to fish this one out! I posted my picture months ago!

But this one is just fabulous - I just love Shep licking Iain's whiskery face - probably getting a mouthful of engine oil and soot into the bargain - and Iain's happy smile. Real engineer's hands too - hands that have seen a lot of hard physical work.

Excellent light and colours and exquisite details and sharpness.


Kind Regards,

Default To ACL1978: track

Hi Andrew
I agree about the ski poles, they bothered me as well.
The picture was taken from one of the guest houses where we had lunch, the track then makes a U turn back to the village towards the chair lift in the background, from where you are whisked up the mountain in a mere 7 minutes to a altitude of 3000m. The resort is definitively not for beginners, as the slopes are quite steep.
