After a weekend of events in the Chicagoland area, NKP 765 begins its trek home as it passes through Elmwood Park, IL on a beautiful Summer evening. The train is heading west for Franklin Park where it will get on the Indiana Harbor Belt to get back on the Norfolk Southern at Chicago Ridge so it can head back home to Fort Wayne, IN. This photo was taken 20min after sunset using six Canon 580ex ii speedlights linked up with wireless receivers.
A continuously growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom-seen beauty of the railroad world from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding gems of sunset-to-sunrise surprises!)
