Sunset at the Starvation Peak Siding

The eastbound No. 4, the Southwest Chief, negotiates through semaphores at the east end of the Chapelle, N.M., siding, between Las Vegas, N.M., and Albuquerque, N.M. Shot Dec. 3, 2003, with 80-200MM zoom lens, 100 speed slide film.
Funny. This very same photo was rejected at another site because it was backlit.

I know it wasn't the greatest lighting, but you can't really control that in December when the sun sets early in NM.
