Nick's picture of the Grizzly brings steam rally event alive
AMATEUR photographers have been sharing tips at monthly meetings of a group called TogsQuad, at Quad, in Derby.
"Our Lives" was the theme of this month's shots.
Nick Allen, 62, from Stenson Fields, took this rural image at a steam rally in Hartington Moor.
Nick spotted this engine in the main arena. Called The Grizzly, it is a farm engine built in the late 1800s in Wisconsin, USA.

Nick said: "I followed its progress around the ring and just as it got level with me I grabbed the shot.
"The reason it fitted the 'Our Lives' category for me is that I have attended several steam rallies throughout the summer whilst driving a retired fire engine myself."
Derby Telegraph picture editor Victoria Wilcox said: "I like Nick's shot for its atmosphere and his focus on the men involved in the action.
"I feel like I am at the event among the steam."
