Just a little meet

On June 21 I witnessed a little meet between a CN train and the VIA Rail Canadian. I was out on the CN Rivers subdivision around mile 7 or so. First came VIA on the south track with VIA 6449 leading.

That's the HDR version. Below is the non-HDR version. I was using a circular polarizer to make the sky nice and blue.

Lovely sky and light on that day!

They met the CN train down the track from me. I did shoot it but it was too far to get a decent photo of the meet. Soon enough CN 5736, CN 2152 and CN 2343 passed my position.

CN 2152 was the second unit... shot because it's "new" to CN.

Just a little meet...

Hi Steve,

I like the way your photo's 'pop'. I recently bought a DSLR and I have a polarizing filter: I would appreciate a post on taking good train photos with this setup.
