Lichfield Trent Valley Departure

Lichfield Trent Valley Departure

A picture taken in about 1961 of a south bound departure from Lichfield Trent Valley Station in the days before the West Coast Mainline was electrified.

This location was a popular destination for me and although I visited here frequently with a school friend Mike Sambrook on his motorbike, I think on this visit I travelled by train.

 

Hill top Shrine: Evening

Hill Top Shrine- Evening 2

In central-south India lies the state of Karnataka and here we are in the vicinity of the wonderful World Heritage site of Hampi. This shrine is the Sri Prasana Virupaksheswara on a hill top next to the Malyavanta Raghunatha Temple.

This is a favourite viewpoint as the sun is setting on the strange and wonderful boulder strewn landscape of that region.
