Heskin . A Day At The Steam Rally.

Well I don’t know where the time has gone, I didn’t plan to leave it this long between blog entries. I’ve been busy working on my book production, transferring e-books into Print On Demand format and creating new titles. It’s surprising how the days flit by when you get engrossed in a project.

So for a change of scene and some much needed fresh air I took myself off to the annual Heskin Vintage Fair and Steam Rally. This is a two day event which takes place in rural Lancashire, a world away from the image of the industrial towns normally associated with the towns of north western England.

The attractions include steam traction engines and all manner of agricultural equipment, alongside these are veteran and vintage cars and motorbikes, there’s usually a selection of ex military vehicles as well. I like all these big boys toys, they make the event a fertile hunting ground for a photographer and camera.

That’s enough words for now, the pictures will fill in the gaps, I have to get back to the grindstone, I have two books to finish and upload.
