Rural landscapes: racing through mountain glory


Construction of a cross-country railway is woven into the historic fabric of Canada, so I’m always stirred by the sight of a train racing through an iconic landscape like this.
The train you sort-of see here was so long that when I saw it coming, I had time to set up my equipment and exposure time and make as many long exposures as I wanted before the last car roared off into the distance. You can see the colour version here:
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, graduated density (darkening) filter on the peaks and sky
