UPPER GORE CANYON, COLORADO, MARCH 19, 2015
Sigma 18-250 f3.5-6.3 at 31mm
1/2500 sec. f4
This is the last of the "railfan window" shots I'll post in this group of photographs. It shows one of the reasons why the California Zephyr route is considered Amtrak's most scenic. The two Gore Canyons—Upper and Lower—are, along with Glenwood Canyon, the most breathtaking sights of the ride. I wish, however, that I had been able to use a smaller aperture in order to get both near and far views tack sharp, but had to settle for nearly wide open in order to diffuse the dust on the window.
