In Woods And Twilight

Leased Wisconsin Central locomotive 6002 leads a train south through the twilight along Tinker's Creek on the Wheeling & Lake Erie's Cleveland Branch.
I wondered when we'd see more from you Rob. Nice work. You definitely like those moodier shots don't you?
Yes, I do. I was in State College, PA, this last weekend. Saturday was one of those days with light rain it was a pleasure to be out in. I had my 4x5 camera with me. I shot all the film I had for it. If it had been bright and sunny I wouldn't have shot any.
Interesting. You should come shoot out here some time, we get plenty of gloomy days! As for rain, what do you do to protect the camera? Plastic bag? Umbrella? Custom made raincoat?

Or shoudl we just move this over to TNS, before we get stuck in psycho-babble there? :D
This is a fine shot and makes excellent use of inclement conditions. Those wintry trees that have been popping up in a number of members' photos over the last few weeks sure do provide wonderful opportunities for composition! The rain here provides a very pleasing muted feel to this image, nicely offset by the headlight.

Thanks for the kind words! One thing, though: That's clear sky overhead. No rain, just deep twilight.
