I think you all know by now that I have a fascination with trains and train travel.

Thanks for visiting. I’ve been photoBlogging ever since “photoBlogs” started back in 2003. If you like what you see, may I suggest that you please vote for me? Thank you!

    BTW folks, it took me under a minute to register and cast my vote.. if you enjoy the end result of the endless hours that are put into the photos posted here, I highly recommend supporting it by spending that minute to cast your vote. You wont regret it.

    @Davin: Thanks so much!!! These things like "awards" and such often tend to fickle and nothing more than a popularity contest. But I want to start to share what I love with more and more people and if that means selling out and asking people to vote for me. I'll do it. :-)

    Thank you again.

    Really nice. I've had my eye on one of those 29mm lenses now for a while, this shot has convinced me.

    Love the clean horizontal lines. Really wonderful almost-abstract image.

    Nice futuristic shiny look you captured here!

    A fine composition with your selective part of the train. I love the satiny metallic look of your shot. Very well done.

    Awesome lines and shape, a visually rich photograph for sure. Well seen.

  • Turnbill on 20.09.2009 @ 11:40

    Very clean and sleek and modern. Unlike the sooty gray metal beasts we travel on from here to Boston. Nice comp.

    I love trains and especially traveling too. Congratulations that you are already so long photoblogging, just like Sam of ddoi.

    I, too, like trains. Problem is, around me there aren't many trains of which to take photos! Nice image!

  • Otto K. on 21.09.2009 @ 20:50

    excellent train shot, nice and wide.

  • Sylvain on 22.09.2009 @ 05:51

    As usual, a very good sharpness wich makes a full details picture. (Sorry for my english).
