Remarks & Notes 
I don't always shoot into the light, but when I do, it's to produce a calculated effect such as this. The textures in this scene emphasize the zero-degree temperatures braved by the crew and by photographers this day. Here, the Batten Kill's "flagship" RS-3 bounces and burbles along past farmlands in Washington County, N.Y., as it pulls a flanger along the right-of-way after a snowfall. The railroad's owner is peeking out of the cab of the locomotive. At speeds of five miles per hour, it's slow going on this section of the line. Note the dog visible below the trees to the left.
