Light on the Lines features a lifetime of my railway photography. In my case, it really is exactly that because I've been diagnosed with terminal cancer with a very short life expectancy.
Many of my friends have asked me to pull together this collection of over 120 of my favourite railway pictures shot over almost 45 years.
In my life I've had two overlapping passions - railways and photography. That means I often look at things differently and focus on creating high impact pictures rather than focussing on recording the detail of the railway.
I hope you enjoy this collection of some of my favourite work. The pictures are complemented with detail of how the image was shot or by recollections of some of the funny things that happen when you point a camera at a loco.
I also hope you are able to take something from the book to inspire your own photography. When I was a teenager my Dad bought me a book 'The Lure of Japan's Railways' by Naotaka Hirota. I still get his book down off the shelf from time to time and it still inspires me. Maybe this book can do that for you...
