Coal Trucks

A picture of stationary coal trucks at the Beamish Museum

Coal Trucks

While we are on holiday in the North East of England we visited the Beamish Museum where I took this picture of coal trucks.

I used a Tamron 10-24mm Super Wide angle lens attached to my Pentax K-5 DSLR and framed the trucks with the leaves of a tree branch. I like the way the lines of the trucks and the railway sleepers lead the eye into the picture, and the wide angle view tends to distort the shape of the first truck. Although this isn’t geometrically correct, I think the effect is good.

I did a bit of exposure correction in Lightroom and added some clarity to sharpen up the general definition of the picture.
