Another train related picture!  I like how this photo forces your eye to follow the tracks into the distance.  Took four shots to get this one because cars kept passing in front of the camera, and with a 30 second exposure it was difficult to find a gap!

  1. Nice shot – but not sure I’d recommend standing there too long. 130 tons of locomotive can be surprisingly quiet when it’s sneaking up on you from behind!

  2. This is beautiful! I absolutely adore the snow. We had our first snowfall in the UK and I captured it at 3am from my window on 5th Feb. If you want to have a look it’s here:

    …It was my 1st participation in the WPC’s and “Hope” just seemed so fitting as I had been hoping for snow since Dec 2011 and then it came down that morning. I only caught it on my Phone camera (I am a newbie to Photography but getting more and more into it!) and I too shot it in B & W.

    Your composition is perfect. I have seen your other work and I think that they are truly beautiful…so thank you for sharing them! Imogen 🙂

      1. TY for having a look…ours didn’t last very long either; less than a week and on that photo I was somehow extremely lucky to have caught it as that was the heaviest on the first day. There’s something beautiful about getting some light hitting the whiteness….I just wish I lived in Alaska! 😉

Let me know what you think!
