Remarks & Notes 
A westbound manifest paints the scene with light, as it rolls through Afton Canyon along Union Pacific's Cima Subdivision. The bridges in the foreground are one set of three different spans that cross the Mojave River as the tracks wind their way through the canyon. A second set are barely visible where the train disappeared around the distant hill exiting the scene.

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.

A continuously growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom-seen beauty of the railroad world from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding gems of sunset-to-sunrise surprises!)
