Train Coming

Taken on December 27, 2014

Chosen Pick of the Month! Judges’ comments: “It’s a picture of anticipation, and topical with so much discussion in the community of the increasing train traffic.” “The lighting is so interesting, and the fact that the train is still hidden draws me in.”

The photographer says: “I set out to shoot a train charging through the snow, but as I waited and waited for one to come along, the light got away. It turns out, the resulting luminous twilight image of the approaching train is better than the shot I had in mind. This image was taken in Sagle of a southbound BNSF at 18mm, F3.5, ISO 1600, and 1/5s.”
