The Mighty WAP7 and the Colors of the Night!

The Mighty WAP7 and the Colors of the Night!

Awash in the colors of the night, the mighty (and somewhat dirty) WAP7 #30367 of the Royapuram shed stands tall at the Krishnarajapuram (KJM) railway station in Bangalore with the 12609 Chennai – Bangalore Intercity Express in tow. The red on the face of the loco comes from the signals up front, the yellow from the numerous sodium-vapor lamps everywhere and the white from floodlights illuminating construction sites along the station. A sure sight to behold! Night Photography is a challenge, the first of which being finding a place where you can place your camera without it moving! Apologies for the not-so-great clarity, I am still learning the ropes of balancing long exposures with ISO numbers.
