Remarks & Notes 
On December 22 a plow train was called to clear the tracks between Hurricane and Cantwell. With a limited amount of daylight to work with, about 4.5 hours in total, I tried my best to capture the moment. As it urns out while it was definitely sunny the sun never rose high enough to clear the mountains and light the train. Leaving me the image you see here, with the train in shadow and the surrounding mountains in brilliant sunshine.

The reason railpictures.net has captured my imagination for so many years. Images of quality and distinction, in other words, amazing railroad photography.
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.
