Above the Tracks/ Sky Watch


Tracks running through East Gwillimbury

These tracks are either traveling to or from this beautiful sky. I captured this early one evening while waiting for a train that never came (or went) around this curve while I was there.

A beautiful landscape. Love the tracks and the clouds. Nicely composed.

I see that you are standing to the left of the tracks. So we can say that you are not on the right side of the tracks. Bless your heart, you're on the "wrong side of the tracks," Dearie.

Rose said...

Those tracks are sort of like the road that winds away and follows you back home, don't you think? (that line is from Times Like These by the Foo Fighters...not original to me...but I wish they were.)

A single railway track disappearing around a bend on such a lovely summer's day gives me itchy feet too. Delightful shot to start one daydreaming.

Manang Kim said...

I like train watching and so like to ride a train from Michigan to Chicago someday, that would be cool. Happy Friday!

I love the composition of the shot, with the train tracks curving into the distance. It makes me want to follow them and see where the tracks lead.
Beautiful sky, too.

When I first opened your blog, the train was there but it left now.

The clouds look as if they are painted on the sky. And that empty track - so full of hope and excitement!

Idyllic! Perfect scene. Great sky too but the eyes are drawn to the track. MB

Looks like a clear and beautiful day to hang around there.

Rail tracks hold such promise - and disappointment. Very appealing shot :-)

EG Wow said...

Patti,
From where I took the photo, the train would be going to Toronto...then east to Halifax (Nova Scotia) or south to Chicago or Mississippi (Gulfport, I think) and somewhere in Louisiana or Texas. (I used to know, but have forgotten!)

Gwendolyn L said...
