Remarks & Notes 
Pot of gold: #478 hauling a freight train blows down her boiler at the legendary spot on the former D&RGW Narrow Gauge. The rainbow only lasted a few seconds, and was luckily captured that happened as a combination of an up-draft of wind from the Animas river 400 feet below, combined with the sun-angle and camera perspective.

Good Light, Good Scenery, and a Train

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.
