Powerhouse Museum 2011 Photo competition entry – diesel-electric category
Matterhorn-Gotthard-Bahn Deh4/4 locomotive 51 has just arrived in Göschenen from Andermatt (Switzerland) on 19 December 2008. We just don’t have a landscape like this in Australia, and so I took every single opportunity I could get to try and capture trains in a winter wonderland setting. After initially ruling this photo out of my Powerhouse competition entries because it didn’t feel "arty" enough, I’ve gone back to this shot because my heart and my gut told me too. To me it just whispers calm and coziness.
