Hello and welcome to the Windypics Photogallery. My name is Alan, and I'm located in north west 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 somewhere it might well be me. If 'sunny 3/4 shots' are your thing this is probably the wrong site to visit, as I much prefer to make 'photo essays' of my watery days out.

The latest updates to the site include some pictures from the Dewsbury Bus Museum 'Summer Spectacular', in August 2016, the 'ELR Summer Diesel Spectacular 2016' in July 2016, the Shipley Glen/Baildon Bus Running Day 2016, the Shipley Glen Cable Tramway, the Ellenroad Classic Vintage Vehicle Show 2016, and the Greater Manchester Fire Service Museum's Preserved Fire Engine Gathering, both of which took place on Sunday May the 1st 2016, plus the 62nd UK Coach Rally at Blackpool, which took place in April 2016. Older collections include the ELR 2016 Spring Diesel Gala', the Ellenroad Engine House Fire Centenary Event in February 2016, the 'Flying Scotsman Test Runs at the ELR in January 2016'. I have also added various shots to a number of smaller galleries too, but too many to list here, but clicking on the 'Recent Albums' link will bring all of these up.

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