From the distance I could not only feel the Earth shake but the tales told by the train's whistle as it announces its arrival. By Surprise, my thoughts went out to my friend who lives to hear of that train each day.

You made a beautiful picture, well balanced and framed. The colors are natural and light too.
Well seen and well done.

When the last time I was here, the train was on the other side of the river from me. I guess so were you. Very nice and a pleasant surprise to see some snow here. Beautiful and lot of colors too even with the cloudy sky.

Well captured with an interesting depth, good effect with the curves of the railways, perfect these lights like stars, nice landscape around.

Excellent train snapshot, you are lucky to be able to capture the train at this excellent location. So we can see not only the locomotive but also part of the wagons. Excellent high angle viewpoint. The locomotive lights with star shape are superb.
Very well done
Wish you a very nice weekend.
Ps. Thanks for your comment. The road name which you have visited in Basle is St Albanstrasse, nice part of the town.

Hi Steve - A fine shot with many lovely aspects. The composition with the tracks sweeping through the landscape is well balanced with a feel for movement. I think the star burst lights on the engine are so crucial here, they add to the impression of a dull, low light winter's day very convincingly.
Have a good weekend

Lovely train shot, Steven - the curve of the tracks is nicely placed here, and the shot is well balanced with a good burst of color at right. Thanks.

Good use of the aperture priority setting to get a high shutter speed and starbursts on the 3 headlights of th approaching train. Excellent sharpness and saturation and well composed with the sweeping curves of the railway line adding deep lead in lines and perspective. Have a nice Sunday!

Interesting juxtaposition with the train and track curving through the forest of the Columbia Gorge area.
I remember my last camping trip along the Gorge included having to listen to train horns nearby throughout the night. Very annoying, but required by law to honk their horns at street crossings of the track.
thanks for sharing,

Very nice winter landscape with that aspect, which gives the remnants of snow, great variety of colors we see in trees and plants, the train tracks disappearing into the curve, gives a great perspective to the composition.
Very nice colorful tones very effective.
Good management of brightness and good sharpness.
Superb image. My congratulations.
Have a good day.
