Tintern Station

Last Monday I took the opportunity to take a trip to Tintern Station. I have been here many times but have been totally dissatisfied about the results. However, the light was great and I enjoyed an hour or so walking, thinking and shooting. I am quite pleased with the results. Tintern station has quite a history with a regular service from the late 19th century to the last passenger train in 1959. The site also boasts the Circle of Legends, life size wooden statutes of Monmouth historical and mythical characters. The texture on the weather worn wood is fantastic and what drew me here in the first place. A very pleasant afternoon can be spent on the site Cafe, with its toilet, car park and beautiful scenery.
