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 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 documentaries' of my days out.

The latest updates to the site include some pictures of the 'Santa Specials at the ELR', some shots from Day Two of the 'MTGM's Christmas Cracker Event' and Day Two of the 'Big Orange at the MTGM Event' on October 16th 2016. The 11th Yorkshire Dales Bus Running Day' at Skipton on October 9th 2016, the Wirral Bus & Tram Show 2016', which was held on the Wirral, Merseyside on the 2nd of October 2016, as well as the famous 'Everybody Razzle Dazzle' Ferry on the River Mersey. Also the 'East Lancashire Municipal Bus Rally' held in Blackburn on the 10th of September 2016, and the '37th Trans-Lancs Transport Show at Heaton Park' in Manchester in September 2016. Other recent visits include the 3rd Leeds Classic Bus RunDay event' which took place on the 21st of August 2016, and a visit to the Thwaite Mills Watermill, also in Leeds. 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. 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 lighthearted explanation of some of the strange terms and jargon used on this site.
