Tehachapi just didn't have the wow factor as much to me. The scenery is great, but there wasn't as many composition options along that line as there was in Cajon to me. We ran into some waits...

While I have traveled all over the US many times, this was my first dedicated railfan trip out West. I knew the shots were there, but it was way too easy to gather a memory card full of keepers. We...

[photoid=712304]

His previous was better than the rejection too. That's why I asked him how many he he needed on here.

Hi color! How many almost exact shots do you need on here?

Asking for a friend. :)

Your almost exact other one is better btw.

Could have been a mis-click rejection? STP or something?
