|"NS Locomotives in Sunspots, Horseshoe Curve, Altoona, PA"|
(C) Allen Pearson Photography
A few years ago, I discovered the awesome adventure of watching trains go through the Horseshoe Curve in Altoona, PA! My wife and I saw approximately 15 trains on the first trip and close to 20 the second one.
This year, since I had two other trips planned, I didn't go to Horseshoe Curve in the Spring. Huge mistake! In the middle of the summer season gets a bit busy so I will have to wait until the Fall to go north.
I photographed several trains, especially locomotives, that day. When I photographed NS 9233 and NS 9973, I was photographing into the sun. Having recently read an article about sunspots and glare in photography, I kept shooting to see what I could get. I think it turned out pretty awesome.
