Iron and coal

in #photography2 months ago

Goodnight everyone!!

This is the 84th publication of my photography blog.

Today, during my Steemit tour, I read two publications that have been very interesting to me:

https://steemit.com/photography/@ninahaskin/dance-the-night-away-photo52-week-4

https://esteem.app/photography/@photo52/photo-52-2020-challenge-week-number-4

This has encouraged me to participate in this challenge, week 4 of the #Photo52 contest organized by @photo52.

I chose the title of my publication in homage to the old coal trains. Nowadays it is not usual to see them in circulation, except some that still work for recreational purposes. I am very lucky that in my city (Ourense - Spain) one is preserved as a monument, in front of the train station. This is the mythical 240-2072 built in 1927 and now part of the heritage of the city.

I took this picture with an Af Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 VR lens.

Oh very nice! I love steam trains! There are two old railroads near me that offer steam engine rides. So much fun.

Thanks so much for entering!

Thank you very much @wwwiebe, I really appreciate your comment ...

Thank you for the mention! @nightportraits
Your b&w photograph of the "iron horse" looks incredible. 🚂

Since the United States holds the world's largest coal reserves, trains continue to be used to transport roughly 3/4 of coal deliveries for at least part of the way from source to destination. In the Central Plains here in the Midwest, stopping for passing trains is not uncommon, especially in the smaller cities and towns.

There also are many barges on the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers where I live near that transport coal, but that's another story!

Good luck in the contest and I hope you have a terrific day ahead!

It must be great to be able to see the coal trains and the boats that still work. Who knows if one day I can visit the United States and see it myself ... About Mississippi and Missouri Rivers I only know what I have seen in the movies :) I would love to know your country ...
I wish you a good day ...
Thanks for your support!!

Nice photo my friend.

Greetings from Mexico.

Thank you very much... Best regards...

Thanks for appreciating it...

Superb photo-noir composition. I think age-worn look of white building in the background adds to the gritty noir feel of the image.
