This is an interesting angle that I hadn't shot from before. Along 69th Avenue, at the location known as "Adams Hold" (for the hold signal found on the Greeley Sub here), the northbound MNYNP-24 is rolling on a clear signal, Denver's unique "Cash Register" building clearly visible in the background.

An awesome expression of industrial power, in many ways. The lighting and heatwaves gives the viewer a sense of the power and might of this sight even though they aren't actually there.

I like it. The heat waves on the far skyline make it work. Also, the power is placed nicely, almost separated cleanly from it's freight load by the angle and the curve. And what would a Denver shot be without those ubiquitous orange traffic barrels?
