Barnum & Bailey Red Circus Train

B&B crossing the desert from Parker, Arizona. July 8, 2003. Photography by Leanne Hall. Photo shoot for Railamerica.
Thanks for the vote! It was 114 degrees and this was my last shot. We chased the train, got a head of it and stood in the desert in the middle of no where for as long as we could - then back to Parker, AZ to catch the next train coming in. What you're seeing is white hot off the mountains -very dusty looking. My digital did not like that heat and I adjusted the light as dark as I could get it. Any suggetions for shooting in that kind of light and heat would be appreciated.
