Self-Indulgence from Chicagoland, United States

The train must be long if you are still seeing it where you are. Or you are on a platform. Either way there is an excellent backdrop with the surrounding landscape and while the image is bright the darkening clouds whisper.. rain.. or is it snow?

I like the ribbon of green the river provides in the rather arid setting. The threatening clouds and the train add to the interest of the shot.

Out in the wilderness, and it's a beautiful countryside. The stormy sky looks terrific.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Great panoramic shot with dramatic clouds and steep hillside. The incorporation of the front of the train on the left gives the illusion that this may have been a ride with many cars. I see where the green (verde) comes from.

Now that's a train ride I would love take once in my life.
