The coal trains run almost every hour it seems as we camped in the small town of Cut Bank, Montana. I read where this is a disappearing and outdated power source, but it appears someone must still be using this resource that remains in abundance in many parts of the USA. I wonder if one day the last train will cross this track and what source will be used for our energy needs.

There's a lot to like about this shot and it's subtle tones.

Nice image. Here in Minnesota our largest electrical generating plant burns coal---three 110 car trains per day! On winter mornings the smoke stack plumes,of mostly water vapor create ice fog on US highway 10 and I94 on opposite sides of the Mississippi River.

glad you mentioned the water vapor, I think many people think it is a heavy pollutant when it is only water.

lost in America, yes that's right because every place we visit is our first time and guess what? We're lost, thanks so much

but we still need a stable backbone, hard to rely on just solar and wind.

glad you enjoyed the photo, I usually don't do this kind of presentation, it was interesting playing with different editing and filters.

This is a really great shot Bob. It is both futuristic and apocalyptic. The car placement is perfect - they look like clones!
