[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The White Pass Rail journey is the most spectacular rail trip I've taken. It is a very popular tourist venture out of Skagway. Of course photographers hang out of every available window hoping to get "that" shot. This is my favourite of many taken on the trip.

Hello Terry,

beautiful capture! Amazing clarity and details. Perfect point of view with the mountains in the background peaking out behind the rock along with the colourful train leading into the picture. It gives it a nice sense of depth and perspective. Lovely lighting and contrast levels.

Nice image, i like how the train leads towards the far mountain peak in a beautiful curve... the snowy river is a plus and so are the clouds and the cobbled railway.
Good use of shutter speed to avoid motion blur. Nice POV and lack of camera tilt, good use of narrow lens aperture to get it sharp as it is.

HI Terry...fantastic shot of this great place...excellent focus and exposure.


Nice compostion Terry with the train curving into the dramatic scenery! Harsh contrast of light with the mix of snow, water,rock and sky - but you've done well.

Lovely landscape.


Hard to believe you were well into June when you took this Terry , so much snow around yet , looking at what looms ahead of the bend here it is no wonder you enjoyed the ride so much , you would want to maximize the scenery in your viewfinder by heaving yourself out of the window at the next opportunity if you could do that which i imagine by the fantastic landscape unfolding here came up at each rounding of a bend ! The train itself shows off well in yellow and green , a little OE on the snow along the tracks but considering the difficult conditions prevailing you did a great job ! My compliments Terry ,
