“When a train goes through a tunnel and it gets dark, you don’t throw away the ticket and jump off. You sit still and trust the engineer. ”
~ Corrie Ten Boom
These were taken at the same time as my post: “I Hear The train…”. I’ve really become fond of train tracks for some reason, I think perhaps it’s time I head out for a few sessions focusing on them. Could be…interesting! 😀
Hope everyone has had a good week, here’s to a great weekend!

I like the first one the best. The converging lines and texture of the tracks and leaves work nicely.

Great compositions, David. 🙂
Nice shots. I’ve been seeing that quote a lot lately. It’s a good one.
I agree, it’s a good/great quote! Thanxs for the comment.
Beautiful shots, David! Love the perspective and the B&W conversion.
Thanx Gracie, your comments are always appreciated!
Great Shots. You could tell a train went by because of the the tracks it left. Hey! if you want to get personal about train tracks go to Bow. I worked on the design of the BNSF RR double track extension as part of the passenger service extension to Vancouver, BC. I also did several sections of track between Bellingham and Blaine. You should plan a trip and take photos along the way. There are many very picturesque sections. Its about a 2 hour trip and only cost $23 for adults 11.50 for kids under 16. Sounds like a great Christmas adventure for the family.
Thanx Dad, I’ll be certain to head out to Bow sometime this week to explore (also love your idea about the train ride). 😀
That’s a wonderful set – I particularly love the first shot. The perspective is dazzling and the tracks lead the eye beautifully into the image. I look forward to seeing more of your train tracks photos!
Thank you very much Martina, now if we can do something about the weather here so I can get out and grab more track shots…. 🙂
Love these in B&W. Awesome shots. Have a great weekend. 🙂
Thank you Angelia, when I was looking at them in post, colour just didn’t seem to fit at all! Glad you like them and hope you had a great weekend (I did)! 🙂
LOVE!!! RR tracks are addicting, I’m telling you!! Fantastic perspectives on both of these. And I adore how it looks like the tracks run into a black tunnel. There are awesome!
You did tell me and man, I’ve been digging heading out and capturing them! The tunnel is pretty cool eh? It’s not really a tunnel, just a bunch of trees clumped together tightly!
