England v Australia - 4th Test Day 3 - England Win The Ashes

The post match celebrations at Trent Bridge today, a historic day for English cricket and for Nottingham. The first time England have won The Ashes at Trent Bridge and also Nottinghamshire's Stuart Broad was Man of the Match.

After the match the players did a lap of honour before the media interviews. I was particularly impressed with the honesty, dignity and sporting integrity of the Australian Captain Michael Clarke.

After more interviews the England players came out again to walk round the pitch signing autographs, posing for photos and talking to the fans. Everyone who wanted to got their turn. I got to shake the hands of many of the players including Cook, Anderson and Broad. After 30 minutes they were not even a quarter of the way round the ground. These were players at the pinnacle of their world sporting achievement taking the time to share the moment with fans. I wonder if this would happen with any other sport at the very highest level?

I may have got a bit carried away with shots of local hero Stuart Broad.

The Ashes 2015 - 4th Test Day 1 - Trent Bridge, Nottingham

Some photos from an astonishing days cricket at Trent Bridge.
Australia, batting first, were all out for just 60 in 18.3 overs (111 balls) with Nottinghamshire's Stuart Broad taking 8 wickets for 15 runs. England ended the day on 274 for 4 wickets.
All sorts of records were broken today.

The first few shots are England celebrating a wicket, there were 2 in first over of the day. I was still settling in.

I was day I'll never forget.

Indietracks

Some general shots of trains and the crowds at Indietracks 2015.
From days 2 and 3, with day 2 being glorious sunshine and day 3 being heavy rain. A bit of a contrast.

I had a very quick go a photographing some Butterflies today at lunch time today.

I think I can do better though, I need to allocate more time and some more patience.

Google need to re-evaluate +Project Loon as soon as possible based on this ground breaking research from Noel Edmonds.

A Steam Locomotive at the Midland Railway Butterley in Derbyshire, UK.

While I was taking these photos it occurred to me that they really could have been taken any time in the last 150 years.
