On the Rails...

Challenge #82 in the Anything goes series. Hosted by Bren Dyer.
Challenge has finished
Trains, Trains, Trains....with a twist...It HAS to be in a landscape setting. I am not talking orientation, I am talking location! No trains in the depot doing nothing but sitting there. I want trains travelling through beautiful countryside...so City trains are out...Thomas and his friends are IN! Try your best to use compositional elements...a beautiful photo with a great train going through it!

At 9000 feet high in the Rocky Mountains a freight train is reflected in the Animas River near the delightfully named Deadwood Gulch. This is just outside the old silver mining town of Silverton, Colorado and an old mine is visible just in the background in front of the locomotive.
