CSX in Folkston

CSX903 SB at Folkston 110709, originally uploaded by Gene Bowker.

My first reason for upgrading on the Digital Rebel Xti was for Railroad photography.

The thing I hated about my old canon point-and-shoot was the "trigger delay". That time from pressing the shutter release until it actual took the photo. The Rebel is almost instaneous, so I've had to learn not to worry too much about anticipating shots.

The morning light in Folkston, GA is perfect for lighting up Southbound freights such as this one led by CSX903 in November 2009.

I've diversified my photographic subjects over the last year or so, but Railroads will always hold a special place in my heart.
