Remarks & Notes 
Livin' on the edge. A Mt. Washington Cog Railway train crests the hill above Skyline Switch and enters the more gentle grade of the Homestretch Flats. Immediately behind the train, the terrain falls away so steeply that virtually no part of it is visible, even from my elevated camera position. The tele-smash effect compresses the distance to the Mt. Washington Valley beyond and some 2700 vertical feet below. Note the distinct contrast on the valley floor, between the dark shadows cast by the cap clouds on Mt. Washington, and the bright sunshine just a little farther away from the mountain.
