  1. love these, they’re so cool, great shot of it in the hillside and interesting dark green shapes in the field.We have one I see on the way to Consett and it’s 149m, lol now I’m going to have to go and get a photo of it, am such a geek! 🙂

  2. Very nicely caught- I love the mountains just seen on the horizon. A brave choice to leave so much featureless foreground on the left, but with the trackway it really works and strengthens the composition.
