My very literal interpretation of this weeks Photo Challenge. I am lucky that I live in a part of the UK were the historic and glamorous Age of the Steam is still very popular, with enthusiasts, volunteers and public supporting the restoration and appreciation of these glorious beasts. Tiny, the only surviving broad gauge locomotive lives at South Devon Railway Museum. Further details here
Last week as I was driving home, I could see the sun going down over the moors. Rushed back to grab my camera and managed to get this shot from my garden.
So I consider myself very lucky that this is my version of Local, which happens to be the theme for this weeks photo challenge

With the Weekly Photo Challenge of “edge”, I was immediately drawn back to the great Terry Prachett..
The disc, being flat, has no real horizon. Any adventurous sailor who got funny ideas from staring at eggs and oranges for too long and set out for the antipodes soon learned that the reason why distant ships sometimes looked as though they were disappearing over the edge of the world was that they were disappearing over the edge of the world.
This photo, which was taken in Prague, to me just looks like penguins disappearing over the edge of the world in an orderly fashion.
I love this week’s Photo Challenge – asking us to look at things differently within a frame.
