Hello Kelly
"Were you using the Zeiss zoom for these? They do seem to have the Zeiss rendering"

Yes and I am light years from being able to discern that like you do, amazing!
It's basically my walk around w my a6500. A nice tight combo.

You mentioned "Notice Sony A7rIII w/24-70 f2.8 GM on the right." That setup looks like quite a handful to be climbing around on that engine with. Makes me appreciate my tight little combo. But then different picture qualities. Sure looks like you guys were having a ton of FUN!

"Out of the cut" Another Perfect winter train scene. You can't get that unique shot In many other places. Thats right out of the year 1919

All the best_______Joe

Thanks Doc

Thank you, Joe!

As for the fellow with the A7rIII. He also has the battery grip mounted. And he was usually carrying two A7rIIIs, the second one with the 70-200 f2.8 GM. I couldn't have carried that around at my age, but its a nice setup. And no lens changing and risk of snow and ash settling on the sensor.

As you can see, we had beautiful weather early each day, but later in the afternoon the clouds and snowfall rolled in.

Kind regards,

Kelly

Those few who showed up 8am Sunday morning for the departure of Big Boy from Ogden Utah, on its "maiden Voyage" witnessed an unbelievable "once in a lifetime" event. I found Ogden to be an especially scenic city and the morning was beautiful. Things couldn't have worked out much better and as it turned out I couldn't have been much luckier on the whole trip, except I hit a little rough patch at Mono Lake. Well worth driving from San Francisco

I believe Big Boy was built to scale those mountains right there.

of course than there were those (like AudioDoc) who were lucky enough to photograph Big Boy climbing those very mountains

Had to get up very early for a distant view of the Harringworth viaduct where the Flying Scotsman was due to cross last month. After parking the car and walking (with many others!) across fields I found a spot but knew it was too far away for my FE 70-200 f4, the longest lens I currently have for the a7ii. Still, it was great to actually see it and I share my humble efforts with you:

Nice action series Brian. Only question is if there wasn't a good vantage point on the other side of the line, so the train would not be backlit. That would probably have enhanced the colours and crispness of the shots (but I don't know if the background would be as nice)



A few more from the Museum Buurtspoorweg in Haaksbergen

That's a great shot Mathieu

Almost looks like a model railroad
