The Windypics Photogallery

Hello and welcome to the Windypics Photogallery. I'm located in northern England and I'm what could be probably be described as a 'Crap Weather Photographer' - note# that's 'Crap Weather' Photographer, and not crap 'Weather Photographer' - or at least I hope not!:-) I do like taking pictures in what can best be described as 'atmospheric' weather, so if you see someone standing out in the pouring rain at a heritage railway or a bus event somewhere it might well be me. If 'sunny 3/4 shots' are your thing this is probably the wrong site to visit, as I prefer to make 'photo documentaries' of my days out irrespective of what the weather and conditions are like. To quote the art critic John Ruskin: "There is no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather!"

The latest updates to the site include some pictures from my recent visits to the 'ELR's version of Ice Station Zebra' on Sunday 18th of March, the 'Flying Scotsman's visit to Rawtenstall Station' on Sunday 11th of March 2018, and the to the very enjoyable 'Keighley & Worth Valley Railway's Spring Steam Gala' on the 10th of March 2018. Also some previous shots from visits to the 'East Lancashire Railway's Spring Steam Gala 2018' on Friday 3rd of March, and some shots of 'The Beast from the East as it battered Whitworth'. Other recent collections include visits to the 'Morris Minor Show at the Museum of Transport in Manchester' on Sunday 25th of February, and visits to the 'East Lancashire Railway's 2018 Spring Diesel Gala' on Sunday 18th of February, and the 'ELR on Sunday 11th of February 2018' and 'Sunday 20th of January 2018'. Also a shot of the late, great Fred Dibnah's best friend 'Mr. Alf Molyneaux at the Whitworth Museum on the 3rd of January 2018'. Some collections from last year include: 'Lancashire Weekend Event at the ELR', a visit to the 'Bancroft Mill Engine in Barnoldswick', the 'ELR Scenic Railcar Weekend Event', the 'North West Museum of Road Transport Autumn Running Day' on Sunday 29th of October 2017, Day Two of the 'MTGM's 1960s Weekend' event, plus Day One of the 'Samuel Ledgard Society 50th Commemorative Weekend' in Pudsey.

I have also added various shots covering other subjects to some of my galleries as well. There are far too many of these to list here, but clicking on the 'Recent Albums' link should bring many of these up.

Also back and now in html format is the essential 'A Guide to Windyspeak' page which gives a lighthearted explanation of some of the strange terms and jargon used on this site.
