Remarks & Notes 
A near full moon hovers over the westbound signal at CP "Indian" which is displaying an approach slow for an oncoming coal train. I heard the train in the distance upon arrival at this location, but due to the mountains and the way the sound carries for a considerable distance, I knew I had enough time to setup for this blend of two images. First, I focused on the signal and did a timed exposure, in attempt to get the signal well exposed, but without blowing out the sky since a full moon provides a substantial amount of light. Once my exposure ended, I then quickly focused on the moon and exposed it correctly. I then used the help of Photoshop to blend the two images together. I was able to make it back home (about 10 minutes from the photo location) before the train called that signal.

This is dedicated (with permission) to the skilled and gifted photographer - Chase Gunnoe - who regularly posts and is on staff with RP. I believe he deserves a gallery showing of his remarkable work. This is for you Chase! (More great photos to come!)
Lights In The Night (Or Sundown/Sunrise)! Railroads Seen In Another Perspective!

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"!)
