Remarks & Notes 
I had been trying to capture this shot on a sunny morning for more than two years, but until the 20th the proper circumstances had not come together. Amtrak Cascades #513 was running about 25 minutes late as it cruised along the shore of Samish Bay with snow all the way down to the water line. A low deck of clouds hanging over the middle of the bay enhanced the scene by tinting the water an unusual color. Air temperature when I took the photo: +11F. The train departed Bellingham about 10 minutes late and was further delayed after having to get talked by a red signal at South South Bellingham because the DS couldn't get the turnout to lock. The train would later incur further delay after meeting a late-running #510 at Stanwood, being forced to back out the north end of the siding because South Stanwood also wouldn't lock.
