There are times when you can’t plan for certain aspects of a shot, but you can take advantage of a developing situation. Such was the case on August 15, after several severe storms blew through the Olean, NY, area, setting up for a rather dramatic sunset by the Western New York & Pennsylvania RR enginehouse. With a quick jump to action and activation of the lighting equipment, all the pieces came together nicely for a couple dramatic images. Gathered under the colorful skies were a trio of ex-Cartier MLWs, a C630, a pair of C430s, and the ex-D&H rebuilt RS3.
An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads because most of us don't go out after sundown or before sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
