Edge of the rail.

I must confess that I have a fascination with trains and train tracks. I took this macro shot on a cold January afternoon as the light was beginning to fade. Note: this is NOT an abandoned track. It was a lot of fun lying on my stomach trying to get just the right angle. Was it dangerous? A little, yes. But what we photographers won’t do to get a good shot!

Happy Friday 13th y’all!

  1. Oooh that’s brilliant. How much fun to get a shot like that. Although it would’ve made me a bit nervous too. Gotta love the bokeh dots in the background.

  2. A risk worth taking, wonderful shot. Also the parts holding the sleepers in place remind me of a grand piano and the parts that holds the keys in place at the back (if that makes sense). Love the tone and colour and of course the bokeh!

    Hope you have a lovely weekend.

  3. Great shot! Love the lines. Sometimes I just place the camera on the floor and take a shot without even looking through the lens. I am not brave enough to lay down on the railway tracks. Or agile enough. Hope you have a fabulous weekend shooting fabulous photos!
