    • Thank you, Gary…and those skies can be so very compelling sometimes.

  2. Great example of lead in lines. Sucks you right down them tracks! Then drawing you up on the snowcapped peaks. Great image.

    • I like your words, Gunta…thank you. And yes, I do rather enjoy those lines, too.

    • I was out there for close to an hour, Allen…didn’t see any of them, but I’d imagine that they’re freight trains…this is a north/south line, so probably connecting with larger east/west routes…..

  4. Now there’s the perfect entry for the digital lightroom lead in lines competition Scott! Super image.

  5. A wide and dynamic perspective with a strong composition. Great landscape picture.

  6. The telephone poles echo the mountain range in some peculiar way – I love it.

    • They do go well together, don’t they? I’m glad you enjoyed it, Lynn…thank you.

  7. Powerful leading lines, Scott. The crooked telephone poles really do add greatly to the shot

    • Thank you, Andy. I had earlier thought that they detracted from the smoothness/directness of the rail lines, but I do like them being there.

      • I can imagine that at first glance one might easily think that those poles were one ingredient too many in this image. But actually I think the more you look the more you realize that they contribute balance and somehow their slant draws you back into the frame.

        • I think you are “spot-on,” Andy…I had thoughts of wishing I could remove the poles, but do agree that their presence complements the rails drawing us into the image. Thank you for the analysis…it’s always appreciated. 🙂
