Well, I imagine just about anything thing would look great with a foreground setting like that. Nice shot, Mike. And bonus for getting another dog into the RP database!

The composition reminds me of Santa Fe ads for its passenger trains that featured a Native American watching the streamliner pass by.

Once again, Professor Danneman knocks it outta the park on the human element.

Great shot Mike. How do you teach the dog to watch out for snakes and such perils of desert hiking?

We often see staged train shots with the wife/gf in the foreground, but somehow, this one just looks so natural. Perhaps it is because your wife is just relaxing and taking in the scene vs. attempting to wave to the crew. More likely it is the pup that makes the difference. Your wife would probably pose and look at the train on cue for you if you simply ask, but the same cannot be said for Riley. The little guy adds the subtle touch of honesty that erases all of the cliches. Nice work sir!

This is a heartwarming view. Many thanks.

Thanks for the nice comments, guys! Offset: I know what you mean about watching out for snakes. We usually try to hike out there when rattlesnakes are hibernating and not out-and-about. But it is always good to be aware at all times! Kevin: The frame just ahead of this one, Riley is looking at me. She then noticed the train and I got one exposure…
