If you were willing to brave the cold it was an amazing year to take winter photos.
The train photo was a lucky accident and being in the right place at the right time. I was standing in a creek taking a bridge photo in the snow when I heard the whistle blow and charged up the hill, the photo looks peaceful but add a train moving 45 mph and a bunch of blowing snow and you get a different picture all together. One of the cool things I discovered later is that the train is a Union Pacific train on a Kansas City Southern track. Well I'm off on my next new adventure discovering the many wonders of Arkansas.
