The Grand Deluxe Express at Lamy, New Mexico, 2007
The very first time that I went to the Amtrak Station in Lamy (Santa Fe), NM was May 28, 2007. This was on the same trip to the southwest that I wrote about yesterday. This was mine and Lisa’s first time visiting my brother Daniel and his wife, Kay at their new home near Lamy. Dan brought Lisa and me down to see the station at sunset. Little did we know that this train would be sitting there basking in the approaching sunset. Talk about timing – this train was not a regularly seen visitor.
Unlike the photo of Pecos that I posted in my last blog post (yesterday), this combination of color, mood, lighting, and composition dictated to me that it works most effectively in color.
I feel like I was on a roll, getting two of my favorite photos on two adjacent days. I will admit to working the daylights into this image mostly with Lightroom. I used the Sony R1. The prints that I made from it look very good for a ten megapixel image.
See what I mean about it needing the colors?
