Sunrise in Emporia
Most of you know of my great love for trains. Well, the first thing I do when I get to a new and exciting photo location is scout out the railroad facilities. I look for the possibility of action (active trains) layout (how will the light be at different times of the day) and atmosphere (does it give me a "railroady" feel). When I drove into Emporia after a long day on the road I immediately got excited. A major transcontinental mainline, east west orientation and good location with the signal bridges and three tracks. All I had to hope for was a terrific sunrise. Well here is the result. One of many shots from the morning.
Welcome to beautiful Kansas. It is much more than just interstate and endless flat sections.
