The Sun Vs. Me or MRL F45/SD45LM on the H-DENLAU
Author: NH2006

It was a battle all day, not sure that I won considering I only got 4 shots out 41 that were OK.

Thanks to Kevin, I managed to get to Highland before the DENLAU but the light got bad, as it does with northbound trains this time of year and day. Also thanks to Pinlifter for the heads up! Couldn't have done it without ya!

At Highland proper it was better though the poles are a problem

Tried a shot in Loveland but it was ruined by a dog walker in a Toyota, so I went to the North Yard in Fort Collins. They picked up 5 cars here so I got a few shots off. Apparently the cab is a real mess, so even if SD45LMs are allowed to lead, which I don't think they are on BNSF, the crew wouldn't have wanted it anyway. Anyone got some Lysol and some towels?

Glad someone posted pics. The snow capped peaks looks great too.

bummer she wasn't facing south for the unhooked shots at North Yard. Still considering the light you managed some fine photos at highland.

Very good! I had to fight several things.
1) The light was terrible where I was.
2) I was restricted to my bike.
3) I was mowing when it called in approaching Loveland.
4) My dad had to work yesterday.
Dogh!
