A hot day on the Strasburg Rail Road, August 2016

With temperatures in the low 90s, and humidity to match, I have rarely spent a hotter and muggier day at trackside; the storm that blew through in mid-afternoon did nothing to break either the heat or the humidity, but the pictures came out just fine anyway -- all of them made with my then-brand-new Tamron 15-30mm wide-angle lens.
