What is it about trains? Something about them is so romantic, you see scenes you normally wouldnt see riding in a car. Maybe it’s the sound of the locomotive, the rocking of the car you’re in, the overall atmosphere.
This was shot in West Viriginia, I insisted on doing at least one train ride, especially when this particular one was just 2minutes from where my friend lives. Quite a challenge hanging over in the open car we were in trying to get just that right angle with the right light. The colors were spectacular while I was in WV.
Shot this in SS mode with SS set at 1/500 (had to compensate for moving and me hand holding)
F-stop at F 5.6,
ISO at 400,
focal length at 70mm,
and exposure compensation at 0
