This weekend was a bank holiday and the weather was pretty good, if a little overcast. So I thought I'd head over to Stradbally to the annual steam rally. The event runs over two days and is held in fields outside Stradbally. 

And I took my camera (no, not my phone camera - an actual camera!)..

The steam engines deserved the black and white treatment

I also shot a bit of video to capture a bit more of the atmosphere. It's just unfortunate that it was quite overcast.

I also uploaded a few full colour photos to Flickr which you can see below. They don't really capture the sounds and smells that you get with live steam, but the engines are often beautifully decorated, so the colour was necessary.

I've always loved steam engines and I'd almost forgotten what it was like to see these monsters in action!
