As always the KWVR Galas are very popular with photographers and the 2015 Winter Steam Gala was no different. If submissions are a yardstick to measure popularity, then Friday was by far the most productive day. With the Pennine weather closing in on Sunday, the conditions were best described as ‘atmospheric’ as Gary Holmes’ image of 43924 and 34092 leaving Keighley testifies.
