JS Dawn

By Falconer  
We woke up at 5am and left the hotel at 5.50am without breakfast. We then had to wait half an hour in - 8c before the train arrived to meet the dawn light on the Yuanbaoshan Mine Railway, China on 18 November 2009.

Lovely shot - great sense of desolation and coldness! Does it slope slightly down to the right? Don't know, it might be my eyes. Either way, excellent pic. James.

Yes was the SR trip and did cost a bucket load more as published, you look like you did similar things for a fraction of the price would be very interested in going again sometime
