That time of the year again, and 2015 has me with three photos on this year’s Canadian Trains Calendar by Wyman Publishing. Bonus this year with both the wall calendar and the mini calendar! March, April and May will be looking pretty good. As usual, big ups to All Canada Photos for making it happen.
I have two images published again in Wyman Publishing‘s 2014 Canadian Trains Calendar! May is my shot of Steam No. 3 of the Prairie Dog Central Railway in Winnipeg. The other shot is July of the Whistler Mountaineer (now called the Rocky Mountaineer Sea to Sky Climb) making its way through the Cheakamus Canyon south of Whistler. This canyon shot also made it as the feature shot on the back cover.
As I mentioned for Wyman’s 2012 calendar, few people know I’m a real geek when it comes to trains. The amount of time I put into hanging out in the baking sun waiting for another late train has decreased over the past few years, but I still love it! I try to make it happen every summer.
With the exception of a few close friends, nobody knows that I often enjoy a good geek-out by the way of standing around railroad tracks waiting for a train to come. Trains in Canada are notoriously late, thus this is actually tough work. I’ve endured sun burn, bug bites, blackberry bushes and curious looks. Not to mention several encounters with weirdos. However, the pay off has resulted in me taking some of my favourite photos – ever. I’m beyond thrilled to have two photos of mine featured in the Canadian Trains Calendar from Wyman Publishing! My February photo is the feature page on the back cover, too. Despite sitting on approximately 100 cool train photos, these are the first ones I’ve had published anywhere. It’s so great for them to finally escape my hard drive for people to see. A big thank you to AllCanadaPhotos.com for making it happen!
