Santa Fe Railroad Depot
If you’d like to see more photos of Santa Fe, New Mexico, feel free to look at my Santa Fe Photo Gallery.
The railroad was an important part of Santa Fe and its development after New Mexico became a United State Territory. In 1880, the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Company pulled its first train into Santa Fe and was greeted by much fanfare. The Santa Fe Depot still stands today in the Guadalupe District of Santa Fe and is a fine example of Mission Revival style of architecture.
I took this image back in early October. It was the first snow of the season, and I loved how the mountains just shown in the early morning light. The Sangre de Cristo Mountains loom large to the East of Santa Fe, and yet, you often don’t see them from downtown. To me this photo takes me back to what Santa Fe must have felt like before the town became what it is today.
Show with my 105mm lens at f/4.5.
