Engine Tank

To finish this week’s theme, here’s one last shot of the restored Fowler 0-6-0 steam engine that stands outside the Erwood Station Arts Centre. This particular example has what looks like a water tank on the side, just in front of the driver’s cab. I just love the rich blacks in this shot, and the way the textured metal reflects the low winter sun.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s shots. I’ll be back on Monday with my next set of photos to share with you.

Engine Cover

Outside the Erwood Station Arts Centre stands a restored Fowler 0-6-0 steam engine, painted in bright green. The winter weather has taken its toll a little bit, giving us this wonder textured metal in this shot.

Desktop Wallpaper: Number 169

Posted by Stuart Herbert on February 6th, 2013 in Desktop Wallpaper.

Number 169

The front of the Fowler 0-6-0 steam engine at Erwood Station Arts Centre is painted very boldly, and proudly portrays the number 169. One for all of you lovers of all things red.

Engine Part

Out in the grounds of Erwood Station Arts Centre, you’ll find a restored Fowler 0-6-0 steam engine. This is a shot of one of the visible parts. My eye was drawn to the texture of the brushed / scraped metal, and to the contrast of the rust against the black paint.

I’ve no idea what it does though!

Baubles On A Tree

Welcome back to another week of photos. The weather in 2013 is proving as difficult as last year, but a couple of weeks ago we did manage to get out in the snow to visit Erwood Station Arts Centre. Unfortunately, the Arts Centre itself doesn’t re-open until mid-February, but we were able to snag some interesting shots from around the re-created station platform outside.

Out in the car park, we found these lovely glass baubles hanging from a tree. We loved the contrast of the colours between them and the green steam engine in the background.
