A Portrait In Iron

Steam engines are powerful. Steam engines are mighty. Shooting close and wide helped demonstrate that. Of course I shot this in colour and converted to black and white. It's suits the subject matter. This particular one is from the Kettle Valley Railway in the Okanagan.  It was fun trying to get a photo of the train without a bunch of tourists around it. A little patience and I got a short little window of opportunity with no one standing on the cow catcher getting their photo taken.

I used the 17mm for the wide look shot 1/160th at f8 iso 200
