Houston, Texas—3200 ISO at f2.8


The sun had set on Amtrak’s Sunset Limited before we arrived at Houston, Texas last week.

This was the end of my most recent Amtrak journey.

These days catching a 800-series Amtrak P40 working a long distance train is a rare find! I was delighted to make a few photos of this antique when we arrived at Houston, having traveled behind it from New Orleans.

The Sunset at night. Notice the classic private cars to the left of Amtrak. Tom Kline reports that these are owned by Patrick Henry who runs this company h

I made these photos with my FujiFilm XT1 with 12mm Zeiss Touit set at ISO 3200.

Shutter speed was about 1/13thof a second.

I made some minor adjustments to shadow and highlight detail in post processing.
