Remarks & Notes 
Steamscape: Whitehead Gulch. One of the most challenging, yet spectacular photo locations on the old D&RGW Silverton Line is this little spot at MP 491.95, about 5 miles south of Silverton. Known as Whitehead Gulch, this is the location where Whitehead Creek empties into the Animas River. This spot is almost always backlit when the train arrives here, making both the exposure and the edit a bit tricky. In this 2009 scene, Locomotive #473, a K-28 "Sports Model" executes a firebox blow-down as she continues her northbound trek with a passenger consist at the height of fall colors season.

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.

The Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad and the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad are all that remains of the legendary Denver & Rio Grande Western narrow gauge system. Here you'll find some of my favorites from these two beautiful railways.
