Train Tuesday

One of the finest heritage railroads in the US is the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge RR.

The train runs from Durango, Colorado through the San Juan Mountains along the Animas River and Silverton, Colorado.

This photo was taken a few years ago near Durango and was featured as a full page image in the inaugural edition of the German magazine “Romantic Railaords”

It has also won me a few photography contests over the years. One of my favorite railroad shots.

It is “Train Tuesday” in my photography group.

It is also “Sunny Tuesday” which is nice to see as I look out my office window. Yesterday was a fairly cold and dreary Winter day. It reminded me of my years living in the Chicago suburbs. The difference, in Chicago the snow never melted and it eventually turned black from automobile exhaust. Naperville, Illinois, a suburban Winter hell and I don’t want to get going about life in Kentucky in the Winter. It doesn’t snow a lot in Kentucky, but there is nothing at all inviting about the cloudy, cold, humid, dreary Winters in Kentucky. I’ll take Colorado any day.

I probably should have made a run to Rocky Mountain Arsenal this morning for some photos, but I’m getting over some kind of bug and just not fully motivated at the moment.

No worries, I did get a handful of decent shots on Sunday morning and I’ll be editing and sending those up to the stock agencies.

I’ve noticed increased bird activity this week. Looks like the migratory birds are starting to come in to the area. That means I’ll need to start looking at the Tree in the Lake for Great Blue Herons. They started coming in last year in late February.

Enjoy your day.
