I had this one laying around for quite some time. An older photo, taken in March of 2012, of a classic "Bügelfalte" class 110 hauling a rush hour booster train. This kind of service was the last refuge of these end-of-life locomotives, which were being phased out at the time. 110 508 here had less than a year to live, cut up for scrap in December of 2012. I just love this shot for its contrast-rich lighting, the very low angle, and just the dynamic feel of the locomotive thundering towards you.
If you have excellent memory, you may remember that I had already posted this exact shot back then. However, there were always some minor issues resulting from my editing at the time that bugged me, so I re-edited and uploaded it in higher resolution. I've actually been meaning to upload it for a while, but lacked the motivation to write this description.
This is because I've been busy writing my PhD thesis in the past months, with this phase slowly coming to a close. It has not been an easy journey, but I'm finished with the writing phase, now doing corrections and adjustments according to the feedback I get from colleagues. If everything goes to plan, I will be handing it in next month, with the defense planned for October, directly followed by a full position in a newly established Collaborative Research Center for four years. Wish me luck!
