Amtrak on the Shore of San Pablo Bay at Pinole on this day 23 years ago.

On the morning of April 18, 1993, I made this Kodachrome slide of an eastward Amtrak train on the shore of San Pablo Bay at Pinole, California.

Exposed using a Nikon F3T with 35mm PC (Perspective Control lens). Note the level horizon.

Compare my use of foreground of the  image below with that featured in this morning’s post at Gurtnellen, Switzerland. In both situations I’ve held the camera close to the ground, while standing on a hill side above the train.

  1. Nice shot Brian ! Everything looks beautifully balanced and the downward view is enviting !

  2. It’s interesting and useful to have explanations of the techniques that many railway photographers have adopted from experience or by instinct , on the basis that their results looked good.
