Thank you Terry. Gloria and I we on the Oregon Coast on the Fourth of July, and we saw all the activities, so we stopped. To my surprise, they were running this old locomotive providing 5 mile rides. As usual, the morning fog was dense, and I was able to anticipate the shot.

This is an incredible shot. What a unique opportunity! I grew up in a family who loved trains and a great grandfather who would ride trains to find work around the country. This phototure is pretty much what imaged he would have seen.

I love all the drama of the steam around the engine. Brought back memories of my childhood. A memory that today's children will never have.

Emerging from the Fog

This photograph of a vintage train in Garibaldi, Oregon was captured on a rainy, foggy morning on the Oregon Coast. I timed the shot to capture the steam as it was released when the train was coming to a stop. The black and white conversion was accomplished using NIK Silver Efex Pro 2 using Afga 100 simulation and the underexposure preset. A custom preset was developed to enhance the highlights and shadows.
