Plus they will tease you by first giving you a horizon un-level before coming back with a "high sun" death blow.

My shot of this unit would get "backlit" and "foreground clutter." Mine is pre-paint job, though. Maybe that will make a difference.






Too bad it wasn't facing the other way!

Lol!

Sadly, it would seem, no one else (at least on RP) ever will.

Carl - I don't see the high sun as the big problem - I'd hope the same would stand for RP, but those blown out clouds are another story.

Jim - I like your shots - bar the yellow tape on one. Surprised you did not find a way to get a shot without it, if even momentarily.

Worth a shot throwing it into the database - it's interesting to have a timeline to follow.

I don't intend to call out the photographer, as the rest of his shots are great, but what happened to the red?

I don't recall why I didn't attempt to move the tape. Perhaps it was a quick grab shot for the heck of it and there were railroad people around (and I wasn't trespassing, as I was in the parking lot area for the excursions).

I was actually there to get this photo, and the shots of the little fella were an afterthought.

That thing is ugly! Was it designed by the same guy who did the Edsel?

Interesting, it is under the top shots but no longer in database. Like mentioned, nothing personal but do wonder what caused it, I looked to see if there was a comment. I like the Big Red Reference here, always fun to see what people think of!!!

Well I gave the GMD 3 axle loco another try. Still no luck but I did a personal response from the screener.

@Mitch - Does the sky look better in this shot?

. I'm surprised it got on because RP seems to have an aversion to dark rainy day shots. If any photo is an argument for RailPictures accepting shots that are realistically and accruately dark that truly capture what it is to be out in the rain on a dark day, this one is it! What a beaut!
Hey, thanks!
