This just lights up my heart. I hope that everyone can see the beautiful colors and light in this creation. Best image conveying the romance of the rails I have seen in a long time!

This looks like a beautiful painting. I love the color. Great composition. Even the placement of the power pole is right on target. It stops your eye from following the line of the train off the page. Very nice. 10
