I was waiting for a couple of hours for an inbound freight for another project and the light was going fast. I had no idea what would come or go. Just as the shadows of a nearby forest were beginning to cover the field of view, outbound BNSF 8729 and BNSF 3202 with a mixed bag of 20 or so freight cars to follow took center stage.
This one raw shot seemed to stand out and say it all without any need to change anything but add about a 10% change in brightness and contrast, trim fore and aft, and add a couple of titles. Certainly, a golden hour moment.
