Yellow sunset, moonrise, and luck - Seeing no trains for about one hour, I had taken some pictures of the landscape with a beautiful yellowish sunset. Then I had called it a day. I was driving, going back to the motel. But seeing the moon, and then passing by the remains of the Milwaukee Road bridge, I thought: “that would be so great if a train could come right now”. Just as I was thinking that, I heard the horn of a coming train! And a westbound at that (it would be perfectly framed with the ruins of the bridge). The rest of the story is a matter of expedited photography preparation with the tripod and all. I set the camera at ISO 1250, so as to get a 200th of a sec, hoping it would be enough. I just did some minor editing, because the contrast and colors obviously required some enhancing, plus the necessary noise reduction and sharpening, and here is the result. By the way, the Nikon D300 did wonders on this one.
