I guess this is the best category for these even if they're not the most still...

The first set was a random chance from a hotel bedroom. I got up in the morning, looked out, and there was a steam train going backwards. Not something I normally see. I didn't have any long lenses on me at the time, so had to make do.

100% crop of name.

Bonus: Saw this on one of my duck hunts. I think it had too much steam and shrank.

Thanks for your kind comments! I personally don't use a tripod and i'm against major photoshopping jobs, the only thing i'll edit is the Auto White Balance - i generally don't trust this as far as i could throw it. I do photoshop some pictures, but only the ones that need it, and these generally don't get onto my website. I'm a great believer that the skill in photography lies in the photographer, and not his/her equiptment. Some more pics for you all:
