A visiting steam train to Hamilton, on a weekend excursion. I heard the whistle first thing in the morning from my house about 5kms away and rushed out hoping to find it. This was the best of my hasty shots before the train departed.

Ola Carl,

Otima captura! Atmosfera incrivel com boa iluminacao.


Spectacular photo Carl! The smoke, steam, colors, composition - everything combined to make a great railroad image.

I love how the locomotive is barely peeking out of the smoke and steam around it. Well seen and captured.

You might want to consider submitting it to RailPictures.net. I'm sure it would be accepted.

Nice job!

WOW! My dad would freak if he was here! He loves old steam trains! I love how you did this! The light is so nice here! Very nice work Carl!
