The Story

It’s dawn on the Strasburg Railroad, just before the sun breaks over the mountain ridge. Pulling a short train, the Strasburg Railroad steam locomotive puts its own white cloud into the air in the dim light underneath. It’s the crack of dawn in the farmland and the Jersey milk cows are already out at the feeder to start their day.

This image was taken just after the crack of dawn before the light had come onto the valley by clearing the mountains. I enjoy all things atmospheric in the sky here, the underlit fiery stripes of the cloud deck and the white puffy locomotive smoke adrift. The cows in the half-dark don’t seem to care much, it’s business as usual.
