Up 'Round the Bend
Photo-A-Day #1294

After the demonstrations today I went for a drive around Oswego. I was going to try and go directly to the lighthouse but the traffic getting over the bridge on Utica Street was pretty heavy so I took the turn the other way. I ended up driving to an open area next to Fort Ontario. There was a big opening in the fence so I scooted through to the railroad tracks. The sun was setting and it was directly in my way. I decided to use it and also use some leading techniques to get the Photo-A-Day today. I love how it turned out.

Tomorrow I head back home. I hope the weather is good because I also hope to take a side trip or two to take photos.

    Thanks MJ, there was no enhancement done to this image either. I did it all through manual settings.

    Nice work this is one of you better photos this year. It has a nice subdued effect but also seems to tell a story. Is there a train coming? What is around the corner. If I go over there will I find some maiden tied to the tracks?

    Kind of the calm before the storm effect.

    Great shot, but it makes me depressed a bit. Any chance you have anything from Detroit in the archives. I would love to see the Gotham city from your lens.

    This is the best comment you’ve left me this past year too. I guess I have to take better pictures, huh. I got that same feeling while I was taking this shot. I originally intended to take a photo of the lighthouse but it just didn’t speak to me like this railroad track did.

    The most I’d been in Detroit was the airport. Sorry, no great shots from there.
