I was lying on on the ground, about four feet from the edge of the tracks, waiting for the train to come. I took this shot as it approached. I was lucky, since there were such lovely clouds in the background. This was taken with my fisheye lens, but at this distance, there is not much distortion at all.
Thanks for all the nice comments on the great dane sticking its head out of the car. I was so lucky to get that one. Of course, it does help that my camera has been permanently attached to the end of my arm! Ha! I'm posting early because we are getting up really early to go to the balloon festival.
