26 Feb 2019 2:00pm

@Ruthiebear: Yes !! It is wonderful seeing it ...but train moves so was tough to get HER !

Gigisis from United States

Remarkable clarity of the image captured from the " Fying Scotsman "! ! Kudos to you !!

26 Feb 2019 2:37pm

@Gigisis: Ha ha ha !! The Flying Scotsman !!! This was the Madras Trichi Express and each time we crossed this Deity between Cuddalore and Chidambaram, i I was ready with the camera..took so many shots and finally got HER ! It was also matter of luck ! One needed to sit on the right side of the speeding train and have a window seat! And only on the onward journey..From Chidambaram to Cuddalore, one gets only the back view !!! Aw!! finally I got HER..but by the time I got the image the coconut tree had grown to block half HER image !!
