Creative Photography Contest, #15-4

Is it me or are the weeks just flying right on by? I know they tend to do that this time of the year but it seems to me that as soon as I've posted an entry for Roger's Creative Photography Contest that it's time to post another! Oh well, it's a good excuse to try to get out and take some pictures from time to time and I've got to say that there are some truly great photos in the contest every week and it's a real pleasure to not only enter a photo of my own but to see what everyone else has posted, too.

This week's picture comes courtesy of my photo-hunting trip around parts of Norwich last Monday when I was experimenting with the new D60 a little bit. This is a shot of the railroad bridge over the Yantic River between the upper and lower falls that is still in use today though I've never been lucky enough to have a train go by while I was out there. Maybe one of these days? Though I'd rather not be standing where I was when I took this picture if one comes along!

Light at the end of the tunnel

Now make tracks over to check out some of the other entries at the Creative Photography Contest #15 Week 4 - I'm sure you'll see something you just love!

  3. I really like that one. I like trains.
    I loved the way you left the scene at the end of the bridge in color.

  4. I love this....one saying I use at work is...

    "I thought there was a light at the end of the tunnel...but it was really just another flaming hoop to jump through..."

    this photo is the closest image I have ever seen

  8. This is a cool perspective on the railroad bridge. We have one of these trestles near here but I didn't photograph it up close like this.

    Great photo, Duchess Linda.

    good luck in Roger's contest!

  14. Indeed, there is light at the end of the....BRIDGE? A look of expansiveness, not to infinity, but the tapered views of each side of the bridge draw your eyes to the destination - that is what you see alone. It offers a feeling of motion without moving at all. Excellent!

  15. I can't help feeling that a train will soon come through! A beautifully edited shot with great perspective and lines.

  16. You outdid yourself, Linda! (Do you say so, too? I know it's a typical saying in Germany, but I'm not sure about the US).

    Glad to see you're having so much fun with the D60 - and I'm glad there's water to jump into just in case the train comes along :-)

    Good luck, Linda!

  19. This so reminds me of "Stand By Me," where the boys are walking on the train tracks...
