Hunting the sun
Lens: smc 50/1.7 Camera: K-70 Photo Location: L÷wenberg ISO: 1600 Shutter Speed: 1/500s Aperture: F6.3

Today i pushed my luck.
The train should have long been gone by the time of sunrise but i knew these
guys from Berlin are late almost every time.
The schedule said five minutes past seven. But there was nothing to here or to see.
Half past seven the sun slipped over the horizon and at that time the steamtrain stood
right outside the image in the station of L÷wenberg waiting for the green light.
But some regular trains had right of way. And so the sun had another 8 minutes to rise
and then it klicked between my hands.

Greetings Andreas

Fantastic lighting- and of course, a magnificent train!

Thank you. It's hard to keep the patience because when you try to photograph trains in
special environments and conditions your winrate lies somewhere under 25% so most
of the time you don't get what you want but every time you hit the spot it motivates for the next three fails.

As someone who has chased trains for many years, I have two comments based on experience

(1) this is a really neat scene

(2) train schedules are works of fiction
