Default What Is Your Favorite Photo on RP?

What is your all-time favorite photo on RP.net? As we approach 100,000 images, I am just curious as to what everyones favorite SINGLE image is. The only rule of course, is that it cannot be your own

Here is my favorite, taken by Mike Woodruff. http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=89783

Oooh, it's a tough choice between:
http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=77137
and http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=67275

Seriously, I think this one tops it off. http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=82514

A close second.

I was looking through photos tonight and came across this one. This probably has to be my favorite due to uniqueness:

My favorite from a photographic standpoint would be this one:

With so many excellent photos to consider, it's
impossible to choose only one. Three of my all-time
favorite are:

Stuart Lovell's backlit shot of steam locomotives
on the Simingyi Viaduct, JingPeng, China:

http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=49231

Many of Stuart's other photos from China are
superb, and worth a look.

Rob Palmer's colorful photo of CSX 533 climbing
the grade in Nevada's Meadow Valley. This image
is a geologist's dream:

http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=50246

Robert Benkovitz's 14 minute exposure from the
Tehachapi Loop. This is one of the real jewels
here at RailPictures.Net:

I spotted this photo and fell in love with it:

The mix of weather and railroading appealed to me. Awesome shot!

As I look through the responses so far, I'm quite flattered to find two of my images mentioned. Thank you everyone.
I have to agree with Dave on the steam images from China. As I browse through the photos taken by Stuart Lovell and John Day, it's hard to pick a favorite. Several images taken by each of these gentleman could easily get my vote as the best image on railpictures.net.

My favorite photo is:
http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=53656

All kind of history roled in to one an older model F unit, a speeder, a water tower, only thing missing is a B unit for that point f unit and of course a steamer on the missing other track. But to me over all One beautiful shot of history.
