Welcome to the April photo thread. The March thread will be left open for a while to allow for World time zones. It will close it once it is April 1st for everyone. Post in either thread (but not both) until then.

If anyone needs information on how to post photos, it can be found in the 'Photo posting guide' located at the top of the forum.

Well it's April in Kingsbury (by 25 minutes) so off I go to begin. I'm sure there are plenty of train fans out there, and I was very pleased with this shot of an underground train coming in to terminate at Richmond Station.

Today is dull, cold, wet and windy, unlike yesterday when a trip to the coast beckoned. Blue skies, no coats, cockles and ice cream cones.....



This was taken at Wells next the Sea, North Norfolk.

Our local rail line is the London - Cambridge, via Stanstead airport, so most of the trains are passenger. Occasionally a goods train passes by, and even more occasionally I'm there with a camera
This one has just passed me, so it's the rear end you can see.

Lovely train shot Picqero, always difficult to catch them at the right spot as they move so fast.
Thanks Jon, trust me it's far better to see London as a visitor. The roads are often near impossible and then just as bad when you try and park anywhere.

Here are the shops at Primrose Hill which is always a quiet road as it doesn't go anywhere any more.

We went for another ride in the country this past weekend, and found a little place with lots of stone buildings, including an old mill which is on the left near the bridge in this photo.

Looks like your snow is finally melting, Liz! Do you have a close-up of the old mill?

Yesterday I ventured out to the the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve, where the poppies are in full bloom. The views were spectacular!

Forgot to say, Ren, will you take a photo of the new tree? What a neat place that you live.

Those are all gorgeous pics, djsgal! The sunset is great and since it's still 36F here, very inviting.

Amazing images djsgal! I don't think I've ever seen a field of orange poppies. This is a pic of a very small house indeed, which fronts a public car park in Wells next the Sea.

Beautiful field of poppies; reminds of some desert in bloom sights I've seen!
I was in London today, and passed by this iconic building. Bush house is the HQ of the BBC World Service, whose lease runs out this year! Passing by is one of London's famous double decker red buses.

Picqero, I read or saw on the news some time ago that the famous buses were going to be fazed out. Is this true? I'm hoping not as they are a landmark on their own. When we visited London some years ago we went out one day and spent it just riding around on the buses. It was the best sightseeing tour we had. It was also the best way to meet the locals and everyone was happy to chat and tell us what we were seeing.

Sorry to say, djsgal, I didn't get a closer photo of the mill. We're hoping to get out that way again one weekend, and I'll make a point of getting one then.

The snow is really going now, though my yard still has plenty! Went for a walk this afternoon, and spotted this robin on my travels. Looks like he's found a drink

Don't worry Argus, the London red doubledecker bus is alive and well. It was only the older style doubledecker, known as the routemaster which was phased out because of age and safety concerns. The routemaster had an open rear platform, and passengers frequently jumped on and off moving buses, sometimes in front of other vehicles. The new generation of double deckers have doors which only the driver can operate, and are more accessible to disabled passengers

I *love* your picture of The Pudds, Kapuskasing!

Here's another picture from our holidays in the Pyrénées. It's a nifty little machine . . . but what on earth is it used for? Check back for the answer, if you don't recognise it There's a hint in the picture



I resized that photo, so I hope it shows up correctly this time. Sorry for all the fuss.

Kapuskasing,
The Pudds appear to be plotting with particularly pugnacious propensity!

Santana, I'll make a guess at a candy-wrapping machine?? Something to do with candy, anyway!

By the way, your photo comes out very big on my screen - maybe it's my computer, or perhaps does it need resizing?
