Great angles, tones and textures! Almost feel the metal.
Thank you. It’s a powerful engine.
The one bolt on the left somewhat resembles the star under the driver. Great catch here.
Yes it does, I’m sure why the star is there.
Thank you. Many fascinating objects in the California State Railroad Museum
A lovely mono study. Steel with a history.
Thank you. I’ve got more from this visit to the California State Railroad Museum. Sometime I take too many images.
Me too, though I’ve not been in the mood for photography recently. Haven’t been near a steam railway for ages. Must rectify that.
Well come to California. There are a number of operating steam engines. Jamestown maybe the best known. Here’s their website http://www.railtown1897.org
California State Railroad Museum does excursions. http://www.csmf.org. Come for a visit and I’ll be pleased to show you around.
Oh, that’s really great Tim, would love to visit. Thanks.
Actually preparing to visit North India in October with a couple of friends. Would love to visit Yellowstone and the Rockies and the desert, and, well just about everywhere!
There is a lot to see. The west coast can consume a tremendous amount of time with fantastic photo opportunities. I may be going to India in 2017 but still very up in the air.
So pack your bags and come visit.
I’ve always steered clear of visiting under the, perhaps, mistaken impression that it’s too expensive….maybe I am picking up the Scots way with money. Then I think of all the opportunities, like following in the footsteps of Ansel Adams…..
Oh yes. The Eastern Sierra is a wonderful place to photograph. I’m planning to return there this fall. I’ll probably go with a group. I’ll try to remember to send you the photographer’s site. Doing this from my iPhone.
Thanks very much Tim.
You’re welcome. Here is the information on Lance Kuehne’s workshop to Yosemite and the Eastern Sierras. I’ll probably take this one. http://www.lancekuehne.com/workshops/multi-day-workshops/09_yosemite_sierra.html
Wow, Tim, you’re going to get some fabulous shots. The cost seems extremely reasonable, and only a few tagging along which means you’re going to get to know folk as well.
That’s my impression as well. One of the photo club members have gone on workshops with him and I thought I’d ask his reaction. Lance seems to do this Yosemite trip every year. Think about attending.
Would love to Tim, but this year India awaits.
I’ll look forward to seeing Those images. Maybe in future years.
It’s certainly a possibility Tim.
