A.J. and I spent Sunday morning waiting for this train in McKeesport…great husband and wife bonding time :o)

overcast day which was great for shooting trains, but just as the train came around the corner out came the sun…love the shadows it created, but it also brightened up the rust on the bridge/tracks too much…hmmmm enhance the shadows, tone down the rust but keep the vibrancy of the orange BNSF engine…trail and error :o)

Well, you'll catch me every time with a train shot.....fantastic! The color of the engine pops out first, then the marvelous rust on the bridge.

It's good to have a little "quiet time" together. Nice post, Dawn!
