Winter Train

I watch the large and lumbering mountain of metal clanking on rails through a snowy landscape pull into a station. It reminds me of an locomotive dragon billowing smoke and snowflakes around it, rumbling to a stop.

The cold stillness of this frozen season contrasts with power and sound of a train in winter. O. Winston Link‘s iconic train photography in black and white has always impressed me. So, I captured this train stopping at a station in monochrome, black and white photography.

He was a commercial photography that helped establish rail photography as a field, and document our cultural link to trains…like a Norman Rockwell with locomotives and a camera. His photos encourage and inspire me.
