This one is for the wall. A minimalistic piece of art. I will add this to my VXFY favourites. Wow!

I like the geometry in this shot. Nice idea.

@Calusarus: Thanks - it was on of those literally 'just standing there moments'. I had a shot lined up with the crossing gates and was waiting on a scheduled train that was still several minutes away. I looked down - and the image just jumped at me.

Cool shot, but watch out for the train! :)

@yz: Thanks. This is especially important here as there is no population of any size, no major roads, no schools - nothing to slow the train's speed.

Love this composition! I thought of your love of the tracks as I drove home and crossed over our snow-covered tracks tonight.

@willow: It is well past midnight - I've had a long day and I'm tired. But your comment really touched me and I'm smiling just now. Be careful in the snow on those tracks. And thanks a lot.

Magda from Vancouver, Canada
