Stunning Train Images Evoke Feelings of Nostalgia

Wales-based father and son team Robin and Taliesin Coombes are dedicated to capturing the beauty of the railways in their dramatic and visually captivating photographs. Through unique perspectives and strong compositions, the photography duo show their passion for all kinds of trains through a variety of wide landscapes and up-close details.

The Coombes team states that their images are dedicated to “the emotions that railways can stir within us from nostalgia to pure pleasure through exhilaration and romance.” The adventures that come along with train travel are portrayed through the strong compositions and crisp, clean lines. Even in the still moments, the talented duo are able to capture the speed and sheer force of the powerful machines. Viewers can almost hear the whirling sounds of the trains–a mix of older steam locomotives and high-speed modern engines–rushing past.
