Michael -

There are trees all along here so, at this time of day, there are splotchy shadows all along the track. In about an hour the sun will fill this location and you will have about another hour until it is too high. Unfortunatly, during that time period I am in my office paying my mortgage.

The effect I was shooting for is sorta like a night shot in they daytime. The contrast of the bright headlights with the dark nose and the muted light in the background. I like this type of shot when the nose is dark, the headlights are very bright, you can still clearly read everything on the locomotive, and the background is muted. Someday, when I am as famous as O. Winston Link, this will be my signature shot . . . .

Dream On . . . .
