Remarks & Notes 
The first thunderstorm complexes of the 2020 season rumble northeasterly over Boulder County while the last light of the day strikes a westbound oil train around the horseshoe at Coal Creek. Getting a train in this loop at the right 10-20 minute window and storms in the right place is a choreography lesson for sure. In less than 5 min when this westbound entered tunnel 1 the sun dropped below the mountains. Westbound oil from Oklahoma to Utah is lead by UP SD70M 4900. Shot on Inspire 2.

Good Light, Good Scenery, and a Train

Landscape photography is difficult due to the challenge of combining good light and good scenery. Good railroad photography enters another level of complexity since it requires the first two while there is a train in view.
