I waited until about an hour before sunset to leave the house again. I’d finally spotted an old barn that looked promising, so I headed back to that spot. Unfortunately, it was now in the shadows, preventing me from getting a good shot.
But I continued driving down the road, because I knew just a little further was another of my favorite subjects, railroad tracks. I’ve been hoping to catch a train throughout this project, but as of yet, haven’t been successful. However, like roads, the railroad tracks themselves also greatly appeal to me as a subject.
I found a spot where the road ran parallel to the tracks. The setting sun was illuminating both. I liked the lighting and the juxtaposition. I shot several frames, manually adjusting the shutter speed to get the light right.
I think this one turned out the best.
