Well, I was doing my own thing in another thread, but UK Wizard was kind enough to bird-dog me over here. Since this does appear to be the proper place to post photos, I guess i'll do my thing here!

As some of you know, I am a conductor on a railroad. The job I currently am working runs along the Hi-Line of Montana just south of the Canadian border. I finally bought myself a digital camera (finally) and thought you folks might enjoy seeing some of the fantastic sights along the way.

EDIT: OOps! I hope it works now!

Hey Montana....I saw your thread the other day and was taken aback by those gorgeous photos, I simply didn't get a chance to reply....You can always feel free to post here or in your thread - Wherever you like.....But we'd love to see some more...Feel free to share with us any camera specs you may use...

Those contrasts between the vivid colors of the train and the snow are eye-catching....And it's a great Rule of Thirds shot! With views like that, it must be quite an incredible job! My brother-in-law's father was a conductor for over 40 years, and he has some pretty wild stories....

Hey Souljah

Here's a couple more.....

In between Cutbank and Shelby. I love the pattern the gullies make. Good thing, cause there isn't much else there!

This is close to the Continental Divide. The cabin is an old beaver trapper's place. The only thing living there now is a family of muskrats.

I use a Kodak 7630 digital camera. It's capable of 6.1mp, but I found it took too long to save the image between shots so I reduced the picture size to 5.0mp so even the 1024 pics are really sized down from the original.

If you see some bluring in my shots, you have to remember I am taking them while traveling 50 to 60 mph.

Enjoy! And let me know what you think....

By the way, if you haven't figured it out, just click on the thumbnails to go to the full sized pics.

Wow....That's gorgeous...

I'm jealous man! I'm afraid I wouldn't work if I had a job with scenery like that

Here's a cropped and edited one that's suitable for wallpaper- if anyone is so inclined. G'head!

Very cool!

Looks like some sort of alien killer vine..
how many seconds time exposure?

posted on Jul, 3 2005 @ 10:16 AM
Thanks SD!

I had it set to a three second exposure with no flash....

That's my niece in the picture - We were trying to get her to hold two sparklers in her hand, but she got too freaked out.....

I am sooooooooooooooo jealous of all the beautiful landscapes! All of mine turn out slightly eerie. It doesn't help that I always tend to pick subjects like old knotted trees as the main focal point. So besides selecting a different type of scene what would any of you recommend to make a landscape calm and/or relaxing?

Eventually when I actually take the time to load my photos onto this computer I might post some of my landscapes to better explain what I'm talking about; but for now a cute animal pic!

Wooow.....That first image of the wheatfield is incredible.....

I just feel like leaving where I am, finding that field and just running through it
......I'd probably get shot by some lunatic farmer though

The moment I saw it I thought of Andrew Wyeth's Christina's World.....

Hey sinta_ilfirin

Looks like you're using Yahoo to host your images....Unfortunately, we can't see them since they belong to your album....There's some odd string of numbers after the ".jpg" that keeps the file from showing....

Try using ImageShack - It's free and easy to use

As far as tips on how to capture a good landscape....

In a landscape photo you want to look to try and get a truly excellent "depth of field".....In its simplest translation, that basically means that the image remains in focus from the foreground to the background....So in the case of your gnarled tree picture - You don't want the tree to be the only object in your photo that's very sharp and focused, but a wide spectrum of the objects surrounding it as well - of course, generally, a good distance away from your object too, as it is a landscape....

Here's an example from a photo of mine that may help to illustrate what I mean by "Depth of Field"....

Another thing to look for is a "Leading Line".....Something that draws the viewer's eye all the way through the image and/or into the subject...Here's a great example of what I mean from the member Montana....

Hope that gets you off on the right foot - Now show us some landscapes! And landscapes don’t always have to be “land” or huge areas…..Macro-landscapes can get fun and creative…

Okay - Here's my first ever attempt at a panorama of sorts....It's a bit hacked looking - But not all that bad I guess for piecing together 13 continuous - I think next time I'll just take the best 5 or so to piece together....

Anyways - This is probably about a 150 year old tree in my back yard that got struck by a powerful bolt of lightening during Hurricane Dennis......Zapped the bark clean off and threw it over a hundred yards in all directions.....There's a couple small spots on the other side where the energy exploded outward....

Pretty damn incredible - I'm glad no one was near that tree when it got struck....Looks like it could die, or become susceptible to disease....
