Merry Christmas 2012
My slant on Richard Steinheimer's iconic Christmas Tree photograph. I did mine on the Valley Railroad in Chester, CT as one of the railroad's highly successful North Pole Express trains shoves back to Deep River Landing - otherwise known as the North Pole.
I went with a longer exposure to bring out some of the smoke/steam plume in the lights as the train passed by a marina in Chester, also highlighting the branches in the trees. Plus, I stopped down on the lens giving me the starburst on the headlight.
