Remarks & Notes 
This image is a bit of an experiment. This is just a very small portion of the full frame (thus some noise), and not the image I was trying to get. But the distant mountains looked nice, as did the low light on the sage with the rails wrapping around, so I came up with this crop of the much larger frame. The train has become a very subordinate part of the picture, the real subject being the rails, the sage, and the distant mountains. I like the result, but maybe I am becoming too artsy fartsy in my old age. I'm curious as to what others think.

The front of the train is dark. This is just what makes the picture so good.

A far cry from the common wedgie ... and particularly well executed.

Whether a sunrise, sunset, rainy day, snowy, or just a bright sunny day, railroading can be a beautiful thing.
