Today's upload is from Pikes Peak dubbed America's Mountain. This shows one of the Pikes Peak Cog Railway trains leaving the summit. I drove up the highway. It started snowing on the way down.
Sorry for my brevity. The new hotel's internet connection is spotty at best. When I get home, I;ll clean up the notes.

This is the first time that I see, a train in these situation.
But spectacular photographed with real colours and panorama view in background.
Depth and perspective make this image very attractive
Colours and sharpness are pleasant.
Wonderful composition, lovely presentation, TFS.

I have to say, what a location!
Just imagine a train at the top of this summit!
Fine colours and a great sense of depth.
Maybe, could be just a little sharper.
My warm regards,

This red train in the middle of nowhere, so high in the sky, is really a surprise. The red jumps out against the natural colors, and the scenery is great, too. It's a strong and fascinating scene.

What an impressive view of the mountains and the lake!
This location must be very high as we see eternal snow in mid June.
The red train wagons are a real eye-catcher.
Best regards, Paul

You are introducing to us very interesting place in here, so it's impressive to see the red/lovely train running the mountain summit, and beautiful/grand nature under one's view with lake and mountain ranges. It's interesting in the contrast of summit's rock and greenery under the view, too. The whole is harmonized well by the beautiful color combination.

I like the blue tones of the montain vs the reddish train

There is a striking contrast that works the shot, seems to be out of place but the train fits in nicely and drags the eye to explore the whole scene so effectively. The comp is spot on and I get my taste of the height and vast scale of the view. The moment finely captured.

Marvelous red vagons atop on the summit. Contrast to it's environment.
I had prepared a WS with minor changes, mainly saturation's - will post only if you will allow me.
