A few favorite photos from the train…

It was just one of those magic moments early in the morning. I was just waking as the train pulled into the station, and I pulled back the curtain to see a group of Amish getting ready to board the train. Definitely my favorite photo of the entire trip.

Elkhart is in the heart of Amish country in northern Indiana.

Train leaving DC

Taken as we were leaving the DC station, late afternoon. Nope, no filters – just great winter light.

View from the train

OK – this was filtered a bit, but still evocative of the cold winter day and the sharp contrast from the pastoral landscape just a few miles back.
