Good Light, Good Scenery, and a Train

Album created by member Lee Kirchhoff
Album Views: 3,269
Landscape photography is difficult due to the challenge of combining good light and good scenery. Good railroad photography enters another level of complexity since it requires the first two while there is a train in view.
