BNSF 506 leads the Longmont Local over
the north switch at Highland, CO.
This was kind of a test shot, using a
cheapie Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 zoom
that I picked up at a pawn shop for $60. I
also attached my Tamron SP AF 1.4x
teleconverter for a total of 420mm. The
BNSF 4408 waits for a local switching in Longmont to clear before proceeding south on the Front Range Sub.
This shot was taken with a 14mm fisheye lens, thus the "warping" affect.
