This was the first session of 2021, and for once, I have Covid-19 to thank for the opportunity to take this image, as under normal circumstances I would be in the office rather than at home (this was taken during my lunch break).   I believe it is also the first time I have deliberately set out to take photographs in foggy conditions.

There are three versions of this photograph on this page, two in colour and one in black and white; I couldn't decide which one to use.  I had hoped that the platform lighting would switch on as the train arrived (I hoped this might generate a little atmosphere into the shot) but it didn't.   I had also installed a starburst filter, but this didn't have a great deal of effect).

In putting this through Paint Shop Pro, I generally kept the modifications to a minimum; if anything I tended to add things I would normally remove (like noise), or - especially in the "Cold" version - I've worked in the opposite direction to my normal methodology.
