A good portion of what I ended up adding here was taken prior to 2012, so I'll limit my selections to what I actually took in '12 - and I think you'll notice an underlying theme. And because I'm lazy, they're in order from newest upload to oldest.

Probably my favorite reflection shot of all time, never mind night shot (and thanks for the PCA votes!)

An experiment that in some ways worked very well, and in others failed miserably. But I still like it...

And my last two picks prove that you don't have to have the sun at your back (nor see underframe/truck details) to take a good railroad photo.

First is a shot of a joint NECR, P&W and CN office car special along the French River in Thompson, CT

That's my story, and I'm sticking to it...

Thanks
