The colour and movement of a train excursion as it climbs through the hillside taken in September 2007.
The dry brown grass and trees reflect the ongoing drought conditions in the countryside.
The picture was taken on a curve from onboard the 7th carriage on the train looking in the forward direction. Given the constant movement and lack of clear view of the front (because of trees and other obstacles) such an angle is not common to come across photographically.

I did not know that a historical train existed in Helidon. It goes from where to where? Is it a long journey? I like the way they put together an old and new engine with the water tank in between!!! In spite of the difficult conditions you managed a nice shot, very sharp and with good colours. Well done.

I like the angle that procures a nice view of the rolling train. Soft colours and sharpness is good. You were a the right place at the good time. Thanks for sharing
