Another one from Sunday's outing. Even with the plants growing on the tracks, I kept looking both ways to make sure a train wasn't coming.

You must have been on the ground for this one. I like the way the distance fades away.

Nice composition, the ground level shot gives quite an immediacy to the railroad tracks and their condition.

Is it just me? I see what appears to be a giant of a man standing beyond the bridge.

The low vantange point and shallow depth of field works well.

Nice shot.

Tjat track appears to be abandoned. However, replacing the ties/sleepers might make it good as new. We have tracks around here that appear in a lot worse condition and they are used every day. The even occasionally run big steam locomotives over them! There are a couple of restored steamers that reside in Portland.

As for the giant, I'm not sure if that is really someone standing there or just an illusion.

I would have liked to seen a little more depth of field in this shot.

Thanks, everyone.

I'm not that daring to lay on the railroad tracks. Just set the settings on the camera, placed it on the track and pushed the button. I have other shots that have more depth of field for Cal. I'll post later tonight.

And, yes, there is a body in the bridge. It happens to be my husband. He got in a lot of my shots that day.
