[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The California commuter train that runs from San Diego through Los Angeles and north as far as San Luis Obispo, called the Surfliner, is shown here passing under "Historic Highway 101" south of the Del Mar Cliffs over the Pacific Ocean. The hill beyond is Torrey Pines. I had to lighten shadows and increase saturation.

Hello Carl,
Very good photo from the Amtrak surfliner with the sea at the background,fine colours too.
One little thing,it looks better when you make the horizon straight,then the picture is more in balance.But I like the photo any case!
t.f.s. and greetings,

Hello Carl
Great pov here, and the people on the beach give a good sense of scale. Yes the horizon could be leveled, and perhaps the sky is a little 'washed out'. But a great angle and good focus on the train. I like it.
Regards, Leslie

Hi Carl,

Very unique and interesting POV here, and your timing is perfect of course. I like how the line of the train parallels the line of the shoreline, and how the eye is led from the train to the highway receding into the distance. A little too bright - at least on my monitor - but otherwise an excellent photo.
