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.
