Silverton Durango Winter


The Story:

It's hard to believe, but this photo was taken just a few hours before   "Comin Round the Mountain".   It was a lower altitude north of Durango, at 12:43 the afternoon of February 17, 2013.      Later, in looking at it, I wondered if the young engineer were not cold as he hung out the cab of the narrow gauge steam engine.    Then again, I am sure there was plenty of heat in there.

I like this best on canvas.
