Vermont Rail System; the Dark Side.

On Friday May 11, 2018, I made this view of Vermont Railway System SD70M-2 432 ascending the grade at Mt. Holly on Green Mountain Railroad’s former Rutland.

Over the years I’ve made a number of photos at Mt. Holly, and I like to work the ‘dark side’ of the tracks here, because it better features the old siding that is still in place there.

This telephoto cross-lit dark-side view also adds a sense of drama and better features the mountains in the distance.

Exposed using my FujiFilm X-T1 with a 90mm Fujinon telephoto lens; ISO 200 f5.6 1/500thof a second.

One thought on “Vermont Rail System; the Dark Side.”

  1. Because of the entended dynamic range captured at the sensor, I find digital cameras provide an advantage in this cross light scenario. The same dynamic range makes digital glint photos less interesting than good old Kodachrome 25. Another compromise. TSH
