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 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 from a thoroughly enjoyable day out at the 'Dewsbury Bus Museum Summer Spectacular Running Day 2017' on the 13th of August 2017, the Hebden Bridge Vintage Weekend, the equally enjoyable 'Big Burnley Bus Bash' on the 23rd of July, the 'ELR's 2017 Summer Diesel Gala', and the first ever 'KWVR Little Engines Gala' which took place in July 2017. Also a number of collections from the 'Saltaire Bus Running Day 2017', which took place on Sunday 2nd of July, the 'Bacup & Stacksteads Carnival' on Sunday 25th of June 2017, the 'ELR's Western Wheels Event' on Sunday 18th of June 2017, the 'ELR's Small Engines Weekend', which took place over the weekend of the 3rd/4th of June 2017, the annual 'ELR 1940s Weekend Event' at Rawtenstall on the 29th of May, the annual 'Ellenroad Classic & Vintage Vehicle Show 2017', the 'Greater Manchester Fire Service Museum's May Open Day' in Rochdale, the ELR's 'Sci-Fi on the Tracks' weekend in early April, the 'ELR's 2017 Spring Steam Gala'.

I have also added various shots to a number of other galleries too, but far too many to list here, clicking on the 'Recent Albums' link will bring all of these up though.

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.
