About the Cover: Train Day

Most of the time, I have a specific goal in mind when I go out to shoot a monthly header photo.

This month, a fortunate accident.

I was photographing the Old Forge train station when I heard a rumble in the distance.  A Reading and Northern Freight train was approaching from the south, and I was in a perfect position to snap a few photos.

When I got back and loaded them into my computer, I saw the colors were good, the lighting was right, and the sun angle was favorable.  It screamed out "header."

The header photo is the engine at the back of the freight.  Above, it's the front of the train.

Enjoy the serendipity.
