  1. This is a brilliant photo Elina, but it does make one wonder a) isn’t it a bit dangerous (and naughty) to be on the tracks and b) didn’t you get cold, wet soggy knees, or worse belly? All worth it of course just for the beautiful, smooth mesmerising rail

    1. 🙂 After posting the photo it crossed my mind that someone might wonder what I was doing on the tracks and is it safe. I was on a forest trail that led me there, it was a place where you can cross the railroad. The temptation to take a photo was too big so I had to do it. On a quiet Sunday with not many trains going it was pretty safe I think. 🙂 and b) I had warm waterproof clothes… only my hands got cold since I had to hold the camera without gloves. 🙂 I’m glad to hear it was worth it and thank you for your concern Mike, that’s sweet! 🙂

    I have several shots of tracks. And none of them look as good as this. Maybe I’ll try them in black and white. Maybe wait for snow!

  3. Wow! 🙂 I hope you took this quickly – before a train came by! 😉 I love those low angle pictures, and looking at pictures like this plus using a digital camera has helped me look at photography in a very different way to how I used to. It seems the view from our eye level hight is not always the best one, and getting a low angel can make those ordinary subjects look so good, and you’ve done that here very well! 🙂

    1. I did take it quickly. 🙂 Indeed low angle often offers a much more interesting view than what we normally see when standing. Thank you so much for such kind words Suzy!

    1. That’s a very kind thing to say, thank you so much! I really appreciate all your likes you’ve left on my posts, and the follow! Glad to have you here! 🙂
