this Burlington Northern freight was rounding a bendon its way into Everett, WA when i snapped this shot from about 250 yards away. the train wasin deep shade, andi kinda liked the reflection of the lights on the tracks, and the way the telephoto foreshortening effect made the tracks seem to curve much more sharply than they really do....

The tracks also appear to get closer together. Interesting shot and nicely done.

The zoom does add a different perspective to the shot, well done.
