Am amazed at the response to this picture. I didn't see anything really special about it when I took it to be honest. It just shows that we all see things differently. Thanks for all the positive comments and likes and such.

Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken at a small station just outside Matlock in the UK. It was an overcast day and I snapped this as I walked across the line.
Time
It was mid afternoon and just starting to rain. I didn't think anything of this shot after taking it and am surprised at the response and feedback it has had. I was more of a quick snap rather than a considered picture.
Lighting
It was a pretty dull day hence me switching to black and white to draw some drama out of the sky.
Equipment
Hand held Olympus OMD EM10 with a kit 18-45 mm lens. No flash. I have my black and white set to include a red filter which increases contrast and darkens the sky in a way I like.
Inspiration
I like railway stations and I have always liked shooting parallel lines.
Editing
In this case none at all. I may adjust contrast in photoshop but generally don't like using effects. I prefer to try and capture what is there on the day.
In my camera bag
In this instance nothing else. I usually take the Olympus and a Fujifilm XT-1 and a few lenses. I rarely carry a tripod and almost never use flash. I always try and travel as light as possible.
Feedback
Take your time. Shoot at different heights. Often getting low down gives you a different perspective. Don't be afraid to try something different.
