Skywatch Friday – Go Train Go

Here’s my entry for this week’s Skywatch Friday. I took this photo last weekend thinking the sky really wasn’t very interesting, but low and behold once I did a bit of post processing I think it got a lot more interesting. Hope you like it.

  4. Beautiful colour tones in the sky highlighting the approaching train! The train becomes a very dramatic feature i n the photo!

  5. Oh, I do like it very much, Dave!! Terrific composition and such brooding, grumpy skies! Perfect backdrop for the train — and I love trains! Fabulous capture! Hope you have a great weekend!

      “Grumpy skies,” I like that. Thanks you Sylvia, and thanks for popping by my blog. I liked that photo on your blog of the global warming. Very cute.

      By the way, I am unable to comment on blogs, unfortunately, since when I try I get an “openID error” message. Just in case anyone’s wondering why I don’t comment back on their blog. I’m hoping wordpress will fix it shortly.

    You’re really working the clouds in your favor lately! This gives me a post-apocalyptic feeling and one of the few working trains is running down the tracks.

    I think it’s outstanding! And I love pictures of trains too.

    I do love how much detail you can pull out of the sky in post process 🙂 This is super cloudalicious 🙂

      Thanks Amber. Coming from you that’s a real compliment. Your post processing skills put mine to shame. 😉

      I’m loving “super cloudalicious,” by the way. That would make a good name for a blog.

    Very interesting shot. It really grabs me and makes me want to follow that train or go into the city and walk around with those awesome clouds hovering above.

    Yep! FANTASTIC sky against the subtle colorations of the buildings and the train. Really, really great shot, Dave! 🙂
