approaching Bristol



  1. Beautiful light and color. The reflection adds another dimension and reinforces the title.

    Wonderful overall effect and lots of interesting details. That creative paint job is an entertaining plus.

  2. Jana? I love the way the reflected lady sits in the embankment and rails. The houses are a bit Tobermory’ish.

  3. Just great. The lady makes it and the houses remind me of Wales rather than Tobermory, though I understand the latter reference.

    I always like the ambiguity that reflections can add.

  4. Rex – I am not sure that Jana would be keen on wearing yellow! No, just a fellow passenger as I was on my back from Plymouth.

    Mike – I know why you might associate this with Wales but it is fairly uniquely Bristol and that line of houses on the far left going up the hill is really distinctive.

    Christina – those sheep might be just a little OTT!

  5. The top half pulls the eye in one direction and the bottom half in the opposite, a strong effect compounded by the depth created by the multiple planes.

  6. Interesting to note the strong yellow of the woman’s top vying for attention with those colourful houses.

  7. It is a very good composition which draws out the smile that the sheep are (presumably) intended to give.

    You’ve even added some sheep of your own in the sky.

  8. reminds me of my time commuting into Bristol & pleasant memories of trips by train around the country.

    Nice use of the reflection.

  9. A fine malt can be obtained from Tobermory.

    Without the reflection you have an interesting and slightly unusual view from a train window. It’s inclusion breaks up the railway tracks effectively and pulls you back and forth quite well between the reflection and the houses.
