I am really happy that my image 10:42 AM won GOLD and first price in the international “Better Photograpy – Exotic Travel” / Better Photography Magazine Awards yearly competition. It was a really tough fight with thousand of images.

Many thanks to Peter Eastway/ Better Photography Magazine and their sponsors and congratulations to all the other finalists.

I woke up one morning in January to a full blizzard and got the idea for the picture when I went out onto the wheat field next to the railroad. There was snow all the way up to my waist and I knew the train would be coming soon – if it managed to keep to the timetable. I wanted to convey the speed the train had, despite the snowstorm and after the train passed, I was completely covered by all the snow from the train. I was pretty close to the railway track!
