Here's a couple from New Zealand in 2017. The railway was built originally by a Potter to transport clay from the hill side to his workshop. Now a tourist attraction with some really quirky station names. The highest Station is called "Eyeful Tower"

For anyone requiring any more information check out the Link below.

Driving Creek railway is indeed a great place to visit
Two images from 30th March, 2015 to give a feel of the place.

Excuse the odd colour balance in the image below; my Canon 24-105 f/4 L was starting to fail with "Error 01" (the common problem for this model of a metal fatigued internal cable) and needed gentle tapping to get it to work. Total failure happened with this image and as a result it was was massively over exposed regardless of what EXIF says. With the amount of data in a 7D CR2 file I was unable to fully correct the colours with the tools I had at the time. A shout out for H. Lehman Ltd who quickly and cost-effectively conducted the repair on my return to the UK. The lens has done a similar number of cycles since then, so I guess proactive replacement of the cable and associated circuit board for a second time would be wise! (I don't want to invest in the mk ii)

Colombo waterfront in the late afternoon of 5th March, 2021.
1/25 at 400mm to get some effect of movement.
The very first panning shot taken with my new combination of Sirui PH-20 gimbal head and Benro Mach 3 tripod.
