Botany Bay freight train at sunset

Port Botany – 26mm, ISO 100, 1/125sec, f9.0

Is it because of the train that I like this shot or is it because of the colors – I know, its both!

The south-east of Sydney has long been a center for industry and this beautiful train is a strong symbol to its tradition in the area. Over the years, the area has undergone constant change, from the many tanneries that used to dominate the area, to car building, foundries and now to chemical production and container storage, the railway and trains have been a constant.

I was lucky to spot this beauty on the way back from Laperouse one weekend and though it might be a fantastic subject at sunset when the setting sun would best show off its beautiful colors. I picked this angel, set against the blue background of the sky to set them off even more.
