Another shot with the camera on the boom, this time we're close to the back of the layout. Curved road as well as curved platforms!

Curved roads always add visual interest Roger and, of course, you have achieved that to perfection on Wrenton.
Great photo as ever.

Is it just me or is anybody else getting fed up with this Roger fella? Every picture he posts makes me think on the lines of "why didn't I do/think that?"  Every picture evokes memories of of a peaceful bygone era, (well maybe I am not quite old enough, but you know what I mean  ;)). It does not matter whether there is a train in the picture or not - just wonderful Roger.  :thumbsup:

I'm assuming that there's been a bit of photographic trickery in the background, Roger? That would be the front edge of the layout, wouldn't it?  :hmmm:

Not much trickery, George. Hope Steve Flint won't object if I use the RM plan of the layout, but you're seeing the angled bit at the left of the baseboard.



I put my temporary sky and trees backscene up against that angled corner and this detail shows what I shot.



All I did in the computer was blend the tree lines together and clone the sky blue onto the temporary sky. I think the result looks better than a view of the wardrobes which would otherwise be seen!

Yesterday's shot made me wonder if I could do a photo of a loco in the station seen in the little gap between the trees. So I had a try this afternoon but the result isn't wonderful. A bit too much field behind the station but it had to be there to get the top of the signal in. Perhaps I need a flock of Flossies to make it look more interesting!

Yes, a flock of plastic sheepies and lambsies would look good up there - or can you do them with phototrickery?  :hmmm:

I think the grass is a bit too long there - they'd be up to their necks in it! Must get a mower...

Still here, Kevin, and staying safe so far. Hope you are too. So when are we going to see pics of a certain small layout in print?! By the way, the gardeners seem to be doing a good job of maintaining the farmhouse garden.

Here's another shot of the 4F, also taken with the camera placed precariously over the layout.

A more attractive train passed by while the camera was still hovering.
