Here is a collection from the local railyard. The weather was a mix of clouds and sun which played havoc with my exposure.

#1 Idled locomotives


#2 Working the yard

#3 More BNSF greenies

#4 One of the cleanest BNSF I have seen in a while

#5 Panning the rolling stock 1/25th second ss

#6 Panning the rolling stock 1/10th second ss

#7 The new Northstar line taking a few commuters out of downtown Minneapolis. 1/160th second ss

Not as much fun as steam locomotives, but fun never the less.

C&C welcome.

You ever get north of town by Anoka and Ramsey. They really move through there. We see them all the time on our way up to Deerwood. I wanna stop and shoot pics but never get the chance.

Nice angle on #2, but I'd darken the stock in the background. Adjustment Layers are one answer. Post #9:
