Nora 5 Engine at Blaenavon

This is one of the few photos I have taken using the DSLR camera’s “Live View” feature. Even though I paid to go down the big pit there was still a tall fence between myself and this wonderful old train engine. The fence meant that to get the picture I wanted I couldn’t look through the camera’s viewfinder, but I didn’t want to just point the camera and guess how the picture was framed. Turning on the camera’s live view meant I could use the screen on the back just like compact cameras to frame the picture over the fence and capture the above image.
