Flashback to April 2011 as Welsh Highland Railway 2-6-2 + 2-6-2 Beyer Peacock Garratt steam locomotive No. 138 is seen in the Aberglaslyn Pass near Beddgelert with a Caernarfon to Porthmadog train.

An ‘impossible’ image made possible by making a 30 second exposure for the flowing river, waiting 45 minutes for the train to come for a 1/500 second exposure and then blending the two together later in Adobe Photoshop.

I had this image planned for ages and fortunately it all came together with sun on the train as it passed by, the trees on the far riverbank have now grown to such an extent that most of the railway line is now hidden.
