Hey all! I just got back for a weekend trip out to Wyoming to shoot the eastbound deadhead move of the Union Pacific 4014 Big Boy from Laramie back to Cheyenne. UP FEF-3 844 came along for the ride too, making for a nice double header.. The chase was nice and comfortable, a 10 minute stop at the summit of Sherman Hill helped us get ahead.

Surely you mean double-head?

Awesome pictures BTW!

Yes, it was a double-headed trip, but it was deadhead move back to Cheyenne. The excursion ran west, came back east empty with only support crew

Lucas, we must have been standing literally feet away from each other as I have a nearly identical shot from Tie Siding on Sunday. I was in the blue coat with the white hat. I wish I would have known and I would have introduced myself. Nice photos and a good chase!

Great shots.

Nice work! 

Up at the Summit on Sherman we had the most delightful freezing fog! The chase down to Otto Road was interesting.

I really love these photos, especially the one at sunrise, that is just a wow....would there be some way to get a high resolution copy of that one (the sunrise one)? Contact me at my email that is on my profile here if you would be interested, I would love to be able to get that printed out and framed. If there is a cost associated with doing that, I would gladly pay it.

Eric -

Likewise.  I believe my contact e-mail is on my profile page and I'd love a print of this image if you were to make it available.  We could negotiate size but initially I'm thinking 11x14 or something in that range.  I'd love to say cost is not an issue but it's not as much of one as it might be.

Look forward to hearing from you,

Byrdie

Your photos make one appreciate that in photography it's all about the light. 

Really like this one as well. UP steam in the vast stretches of the West. Were you on a small hill to get this shot? Lots of work to scout out and then get out in the middle of nowhere, and at the right time, to get shots like this.
