This idea has been far more popular than I first imagined. The first thread (found here), at over 50 pages has gotten too long so it's time to start a new one.
Here's the original intro just as a reminder...
Many of us are not solely focused on photographing railroads, either real or models. Plus I know that some of you even did this as a job, some latent photographers, and some of us are just plain lucky. Because I like seeing a good photo, here's the idea for this thread -- it will be a place to show off your nifty artsy-fartsy photos. You know the ones...those photos that the rest of the family skips over because so-and-so looks so cute! Meanwhile that great low-down red sun-warmed Monument Valley shot gets shuffled to the bottom of the deck. Yup here's an opportunity to show the rest of us what you've got beyond those photos centered on trains. You've seen some of my stuff so let's see some of those well composed artistic photos worth sharing with others on the forum. I betcha there's some award winners out there and you're just hidding them.
Thanks for all of the great contributions. Keep them coming!

Sort of railroad - looking toward Farmington from the Sangre de Cristos in New Mexico.

My buddy, spending time with me while watching TV.
Decision time this weekend as he has developed kidney failure.

Great photos of the frost!!! Not long ago I had found a link to someone's site and it was loaded with frost pictures. If I find that link again
I will post it. All of our windows are insulated thermopanes, good for what they are intended, not good for frost pictures.

We've replaced all of the windows in our house with insulated thermopane ones, with the exception of two small ones. Sometimes when its really cold like last week, small bits of frost will form on the inside of the outer pane in one window. This happened last week, and I took the opportunity to take a few close up photos:
The intricate beauty created by nature! Used a +10 dioptre close up lens on my 50mm lens to get in close, as these were about an inch across.

Thanks Danny. I used Photoshop Elements 10 - it is pretty much automatic.

Great stitch, Dennis! That's something I'm wanting to try.

Here is my attempt at a panorama. 7 photos taken from the top of the Green Monster, Fenway Park, Boston, Mass.

As I look out my window at the snow and the minus 24 degree celsius wind chill. To keep warm I think about my summer vacation to Monument Valley!!

Thanks for the photo Dave, Will help in my backdrop painting at Bill Scobie's Sn3 railroad.

Actually, this is railroad related. I decided I needed a good mountain photo, so I dug out a shot of Lizard Head from Colorado:
And the RGS logo it inspired:
