Engine Sheds

I like the buildings around Preston Docs, some are quirky, most are interesting, and some are unexpected. I was driving down to the banks of the Ribble to sketch the river when I came across this building. Preston has a light railway which used to serve the docks and some of the track as been preserved. Engines run occasionally, usually on bank holidays, and are always popular.

Unusually I forgot to take a reference photo so the colours are from memory but are pretty representative. The day was overcast and the light wasn’t great but there were some interesting shadows to add some interest. The right hand edge of the building was masked while the tree was a being added to preserve a nice clean edge.
