Sometimes things just seem to come together as was the case on this particular Saturdays excursion with the holiday season some fresh snow and ice & the star attraction of the night was none other than the Polar Express Train on the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad just about to depart the station in Cumberland for a trip to none other than the North Pole aka Frostburg
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!)
