I often peruse this website to look at DC-6/C-118 pictures, as I spent a lot of time in them as a Radioman in the Navy (VR-21). There are several shots of aircraft I actually flew in here. Anyway, I fell in love with your picture because it's so much more than a picture of a DC-6. It captures a mood. The icy flight line, the background lights in the frozen night air, the GSE around the aircraft and even the headlights of the vehicle parked at the bottom of the boarding ladder absolutely sing to me. Perhaps my advancing years are making a hapless romantic out of me, but for what it's worth I do very much like your pic.
