End of the Line

This track spur leads away from the end of the line at a rail yard in 42N country. While the staging area is for older rail cars it is not quite the last stop. A look around shows there are no weeds, the rails are shiny and newer gravel bedding underneath the tracks suggest an active, working area. On this day however there isn't even a hint of activity, but it still makes for a great shot. Know that.


  1. Trains make great photo studies since they are big, visually interesting and a bit out of reach for many people. Their look is enhanced if you process the shots in vivid black & white. On that day the lighting was even as there was a thick cloud deck overhead. That adds to the moodiness of the shot. Know that.
