I happened across these tracks last weekend and took a couple shots after seeing other IR train track shots on here and liking them. So, the train track idea isn't completely original but I just had to try some and see what I could come up with.

Nice choice of scenery, Troy. I take it you used a tripod for 1/3s shutter. You probably could have done this handheld if you had gone to iso200 and ev-2/3 (instead of iso 100 and ev0 here). This is a little over exposed so that would help there as well. A few more clouds and maybe lose the speed limit sign and other sign by the track. Good work! Keep 'em comin.

Yes, it was on a tripod. Those tracks are commuter train tracks so I didn't want to hang out too long there and have a train sneak up on me so I was in a bit of a hurry. I wish I would have tried a few more shots with different exposures and such but really didn't feel comfortable with me and my dog hanging out too long. As is I'm suprised at how muchI like this shot even with the added signs and such.

Truth is that I often simply forget to change the camera setup for specific conditions. I guess that's just part of being new to photography...which is why I think you for your comments and hope I'll remember to try as you suggest in the future.


Thanks for the original idea about IR shots with train tracks. I may have simply turned back into the woods without shooting this if I had not been inspired by your shots.
