Till my next journey..Goodbye to August, Welcome September!

I hope you have enjoyed this latest road trip series. I really enjoyed this trip as I was able to find new areas to shoot this Fall. I didn't quite shoot as many pics as I wanted but the "quality" time spent alone and on the back roads was soothing to the soul and mind.plus I feel I captured some really quality shots for my portfolio...More trips are planned later this year. Thanks for stopping by!!

Thunder in the hills...(For Michelle)

Waiting on a siding for a north bound local to pass before heading on south towards Chatsworth..

2 Dash 9 units in a very hard pull here...(Ground shaking hard pull)..

3 Units (2 Dash 9s and an SD 40) with an empty coal train heading south near the Hiawassee River..

"High Ballin" south...

Never grew out of the love of railroads..A major CSX line runs through this area and I never have gotten a chance to take wait and capture them as they pass through. I plan to work an area with a Norfolk Southern line this Fall somewhere in the mountians, just dont know where yet....

Arc Angels....






A lone storm provided me with some entertainment this evening. Although a very prolific lightning producer, almost all was hidden behind the rain shaft in the core of the storm. Still it was worth it!!
