When riding the Trans Mongolian Railway through the Gobi dessert at some occasions you have really beautifull curves on the track. Nice stormy weather down South. Played with some levels and saturation to get it more dramaticly.

Heel mooie kleuren, een perfect gebruik van Dof en een heel knappe compositie. Een heel knappe foto als introductie op TE (nu zijn de verwachtingen natuurlijk heel hoog gespannen). Welkom op TE en hopelijk zien we nog meer van dit fraaie werk.

Wow !! That's what I say !
That first post is outstanding. I like trains and pictures of trains. But here it goes beyond that simple subject interest. You took a rare opportunity (with a storm sky behind), with an interesting location and good technical skills.
Welcome on TE and thank you for sharing that one. I really appreciate it.

Welkom op TE, wat een mooie foto om mee te beginnen!
Mooie compositie en zichtpunt zo vanuit een open raam van de trein. Ook de kleuren zijn mooi intens.

A very nice shot for your first day on TE !...
I like the harmony between the yellow and grey, and the contrast between the sand and the brillant metal... And what a POV... Beautiful.
And welcome Lars !

I've also taken this train but what a contrast between taking it in winter and in summer. The contrasts between the golden sand and the dark clouds is stunning. The details of the stones are so sharp. I like the way the train curves around and the reflection on the right.
