Train (and Car) Colors

Our recent road trip to Niagara Falls, NY, involved a long train ride from and back to the Amtrak station in Wilmington, DE. Travelling this way gave both Grenville and I time to enjoy the scenery along the way without worrying about the traffic.

Of course, we passed many trains – much to Grenville’s delight.train scenes

Upstate NY was already in fall foliage mode at the end of September. Here on the VA eastern shore, we’re waiting for the leaves to turn and they will, but not until mid-November (or later).fall colorsfall colors2fall colors3

Travelling in late afternoon gave old factory buildings and utility lines a glow.old factoriescity scenes1

Driving home from the station there were more colors — highway lights.hiway lites

The above effect was my attempt at an abstract. It was done by circling the camera during exposure; this was the only “decent” one out of several attempts.

The setting sun can put out such great colors. I like your fall colors of your trees too.

Beautiful photographs!

I have always loved trains and can sit for hours watching them if I have the time.

Have a great day!
