CSX Dawn Glow by DragonWolfACe CSX Dawn Glow by DragonWolfACe
Sometimes, when one is railfanning, the best shot of the day is the first shot of the day. This is one of those shots.

Anyone can go and find an interesting subject to photograph at a certain time of day. What makes it hard for someone like me is the subject is moving.

As luck would have it, usually when the light is the best is when there is nothing running and the scanner is quiet. Nothing is more frustrating than waiting an hour for a train only for a cloud to block the sun right when your about to take the shot. Its even more frustrating when that entire hour waiting, it was constantly sunny.

Anyway, CSX Q393 takes the long connection at Geenwich as a combination of summer mist and haze rise in the first minutes of daylight.

Its "part of the scene". Could always photoshop it out...

That's so cool!

Hopefully, it will find it's way into a coffee-table book on American Railroads some day (and you'll get a check)!.
