Mountain Thunder

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 19 October 2011 in Transportation.

I went to Cumberland in western Maryland to see the fall color and photograph the Mountain Thunder steam locomotive. This is a 1916 Baldwin built steam engine. It went from Cumberland to Frostburg, MD. At different locations on the way to and from Frostburg I took photos. It was an interesting trip. I have never met so many train enthusiasts. The next few pictures are from the trip.

A beautiful shot with this old train, but what about pollution ? This cloud is terrific. Water only?

@Ddo: Mostly steam but there is also some soot.

What a beautiful capture of this engine and the plume of steam it releases! With the lighting on the steam, it gives a 3-D look to the plume.

This is so awesome - I just love this shot! It's perfectly composed, and the light through the steam is incredible! This would make a fantastic poster.
