Photo of Ely railway station commended in Network Rail competition

A STUNNING image of Ely railway station on a misty day has been selected as a runner-up in a national photography competition.

The photograph by Rohan Reilly was commended in the Network Rail Lines in the Landscape award as part of the Take a View Landscape Photographer of the Year competition.

Mr Reilly said: “This photo was taken at Ely station while changing trains on a misty day in December. The various lines and striking lamps leading into the thick fog captured my attention.”

Dave Ward, Network Rail route managing director for Anglia, said: “This photograph is a worthy runner-up as it captures what the Lines in the Landscape award is all about. The railway is an integral part of our landscape and our lives. Many congratulation to Rohan and to all those commended in this year’s competition.”

This is the third year that Network Rail has supported the competition. The best images will be displayed at a free exhibition at the National Theatre in London from 12 November.

David Byrne from Staffordshire won the overall competition with a black and white shot of Lindisfarne Castle. Details of all the category winners are available at www.take-a-view
