Half-lit at Blue Cut...
Author: oyw

...no, I wasn't drinking! But I did visit Don Winslow's favorite curve near the Swarthout Road crossing in Cajon Pass early Saturday morning. Seconds after the first rays of sunlight peeked over the mountains, eastbound BNSF 7565 conviently appeared in my viewfinder. Like they say, "sometimes it's better to be lucky than good!"

Right place at the right time!  I like the "spotlight" effect on the lead unit.

You must have been pretty buzzed on this one! Even sober!

Yup, you found the spot. Nice shot. That light doesn't stay there for very long so ya gotta hope for a train. I like that elevated spot you shot from. In the old days I got tons of shots from the little hill but due to health reasons now, I can't climb up there any more so I hafta settle for the track level stuff.

Great shot! And maybe you got away with a bit of a break! I’ve heard through the grapevine that Don charges by the pixel for use of his world-class photo location... :^)
