Steam Engine & Snow


Today was the 1st day for the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic railroad for the 2008 season. The photos start at Chama New Mexico (8,000 ft.) and go to the top of Cumbres Pass (10,000 ft.

#1
Cold & Wet makes for a lot of steam.


#2
A couple of miles out of town things are looking good.


#3
A few more miles and now we are seeing more snow.


#4
About 6 miles into the trip


#5
The snow is getting deeper.


#6
On top of the pass a windy white out


#7 Our Engineer for this trip.

Two of these photos were taken with a Canon. The others are with my K10D and a Tamron 24 - 135.

Nice shots. Haven't seen you post much recently, and wondered what happened.

Wonderful and fun series, Roger. I think I like #s 3, 4 and 5 the best but they are all good. I use that same Tamron and have been quite pleased with it. By the way, good luck at the gallery.
