Sleeping Giant<br />
A former New Haven EMD FL-9 sits quietly on the grounds of the Connecticut Eastern Railroad Museum in Willimantic, CT as the crescent moon sets in the background.  This was taken during a test night shoot.  It was the first time I had used studio monolights to light a night scene - this was using two lights - one nearly face on, and the other broadside.  Traditionally we had used a portable Lumedyne flash, which was used to evenly light the scene.  This method enabled the use of shadows to add some depth, and preserve the night "feel"

Cold Morning at the Cove II
Providence & Worcester train NR-2 skirts along Poquetanuck Cove in Preston, CT, as single didgit overnight temperatures continued into the daytime. The falling tide also caused the ice to break over the rocks in some interesting formations.
