Looking West at Sunset

I’m in the final phases of my book Union Pacific and its Predecessors.

Among the photos I’ve been sifting through are images I exposed on film between 1990 and 2016.

I made this Fujichrome slide looking west along Union Pacific’s Chicago & North Western east-west mainline west of of Ashton, Illinois on the evening of November 10, 2008.

I was traveling with fellow photographer Marshall Beecher and we caught this Union Pacific train in the final glow of daylight.

At the time I was working with a pair of Canon EOS-3 film cameras.

This morning I scanned the slide using a Nikon LS-5000 digital scanner powered by VueScan software and imported the TIF file into Adobe Lightroom for scaling and color adjustment to be presented here.

Eurotram Strasbourg April 2016.

On April 21, 2016, I made a rail-trip from Basel, Switzerland across northeastern France that included a three-hour stop-over in Strasbourg, where I explored the city by tram.

It was a warm sunny day and I made this 35mm Provia 100F color slide using my Canon EOS-3 with 40mm pancake lens.

Strasbourg was the first city to adopt this style of low-floor tram car sold as ‘Eurotram’. Similar cars were later ordered for service in Milan, Italy, and Porto, Portugal and have previously been featured on Tracking the Light.
