Shot this hand-held in very low light with a high ISO. Not a sharp capture, but it is always an exciting and great feeling to capture these in the wild.
My day was made as soon as this beautiful thing came into the sight and that too at a crazy speed of around 100Kmph !!
PUNE WDM-2 #17849 smokes hard and blasts past me in no time without any load towards Loni, never seen a light loco going so fast !!

This may not be my best night sky, but it does represent a certain determination. You see, I broke my arm recently not, my friends, by climbing around on jumbo rocks in the middle of a moonless night, no no. Rather, by nonchalantly riding my bicycle in the middle of a warm fall day. So arm in cast, I set out with friends Patti and Doug to finish some night sky business we had planned in October when our Federal Government went out to lunch for a month. I can say, working with one arm in a cast certainly adds a dimension to the challenge of balance on unknown surfaces on a dark moonless night. So ... I was reasonably happy with this, and by the way - a little light painting on the rocks.
We're all weathered wood. The years have not been kind to the door on this old caboose, used as the tourist info centre for St. Thomas, Ontario, and, the rather large statue of Jumbo the elephant, right next to it. Jumbo, you ask? I'm glad you did. Yes, St. Thomas, my present place of abode, is famous for killing the world's most beloved elephant of all time. So, when the 100 year anniversary rolled around in the 1980's we decided to commemorate our role in the nefarious pachydermicide, by ordering a large sculpture of said mammal, to be placed nowhere near the site where we killed him. Its on a big hill as you enter town from the west. Kinda hard to miss.
