Heading South - Far South!
My wife wanted to go south this winter. So, we leave today for Antarctica for three weeks. No internet available; so I won't be able to visit here. Congratulations in advance to all contest finalists and winners.
This train is at the Steamtown site in Scranton, PA. Snow, smoke, & light added in PSP8. Original in discussion.

    It's going to be tough to miss my BP "fix" every morning. Hope to get a few good shots in Antarctica. The original shot of the train is here.

Good luck, Wally. Great shot, Wally. Looks like you were up in my parent's neck of the woods. Scranton is the closest (I guess you could call it) city to them. I love your treatment of the train. I've seen it in those conditions for real. Not the smoke, but the snow storm. We'll miss you while you're gone.
