wow! I see you had 350mm to help you out but still must've been quite near the railway?! Amazing shot!

Thanks! I chose an angle where the train would appear to be coming directly at me, yet, in reality it is curving away from me. The telephoto lens helps compress distance and make the train look much more imposing than if I had photographed it with a normal or wide angle lens. It was actually quite a safe distance away from me, even at the closest point.

Another amazing shot! :wow: :clap: Epic awesome, great work! :thumbsup: These locos are really nice looking, and the KCS color scheme plus the place's colors combine perfectly! I have to admit also that I enjoy this photo a lot for the superelevation of the train and the diesel smoke! :D
