We love trains. My son’s 11th birthday was coming up, and an open-air train ride in coal mining country sounded fun.
We’d be taken to a little coal mining town, have a little hike, but mostly, ride an old train. My son was excited (we all were, really). We booked a room at an Eastern Kentucky state resort park a couple hours away and made a great adventure weekend of it all.
When we got to the train, a light rain fell off and on. We didn’t let that deter us. Or stop me from taking so.many.photos. Honestly, the light was amazing and I loved the drama it added to each shot. There were a few unexpected things like a dark, close tunnel and a train yard.
And then there was the fall color I’d been seeking after.
I loved-with all my heart-loved editing the above photo. So much so, I made a video of all my edits, sped up the video, and will post it on social media. If you want to see how I do what I do, please hop on over to Instagram and check it out. It’s a whole new perspective on a piece of artwork. The rain is real, but it didn’t come through very well on the original photo. So I took an artistic liberty and amped up the rain with an overlay. You’ll see.
It’s a tie for favorite photo. Want to see how I do what I do? Watch me edit!
