Taken while the train appoached the train station. It's a special light railway, only a few of these steam engines and trains left. The strong contrasts were a real challenge so although I have some blown out lights here I think I managed quite well for a quick JPEG shot. Enjoy:

Very nicely done. Now it just needs a caption to complete the postcard image.

You have a very difficult shooting solution here. The dark black on the locomotive and the bright white of the snow and clouds. That would push any metering system to the limit. A split or graduated neutral density filter would have helped to reduce the brightness of the snow and evened out the exposure.

Beautiful, the postcard framing complements the steam engine shot very well.
