Iowa Traction 50

Iowa Traction 50

Iowa Traction - Fall 2020

The color around Mason City held up pretty well to the overnight winds. And it was sunny, so we had that improvement as well. I had planned to spend the morning shooting the Iowa Traction in earnest, taking advantage of the fall colors.

I had a productive day on the tiny little railroad, but the color wasn’t so easy. The bulk of the railroad’s traffic moves over 3.5 miles of track on the north side of 19th Street in Mason City. And there’s not many trees. So I had to be a little creative. I missed a few shots, but had a few successes as well.
