I had no idea turntables / round houses were still being used today. How high up are you to take this shot?

Here's a bad HDR I did 3 years ago shortly after I first got my camera. Somehow remembered my Minus login :lol:
Old bad HDR (external link)

Edit: Here's a quick fix of the original, I decided to skip HDR because the trees sway in each shot.

Very nice but do you have any photos that show the entire engine?

Nice shot of it, and thanks for posting.
That engine has quite the history, as well as apparently having been on both sides of the small pond. ;)

The Captain and crew finally got their stuff together, now if we can only remember where we left it. :cool:

Thank you for finding this photo! That is a very interesting looking engine :)

Ballen,

Thank you also for the bit of history on the Dwight D Eisenhower engine :)

Its not the best shot because it was behind a metal barrier and I had to poke the lens through a gap.
I've a few others to post.

I've seen plenty of Roundhouse shots, mostly Steam of course. But, I've never seen one with a view like this! Wonderful image. The timing of the fresh snow and engine parked on the turntable really sets this apart. What were you in to get this view?
