Big Iron Horses
Steel turning round
The sparks and the thunder
As the wheels shook the ground
The boxcars and the flatbeds
And the whistles blowin’ steam
That was yesterday, now those big trains don’t come anymore

  1. Awwwww. The pic makes me all nostalgic for those big iron horses. I’d so like to show a real moving (living!) one to my son. But they’re all gone. So sad, so sad. Still, there’s a couple of sexy looking smaller iron horses in the corner there. At least they’ll be around a while.

  2. Did you take this photo lying on your side, turned the camera, or turned the photo in Photoshop? Very cool effect!

  3. I laid down on the tracks tilted sideways and snapped away. I try it from all angles to find the one I like best.

  4. Steel horses all around. Lovely shot M, I’m have been staring at it for minutes.

  5. minus <> of course argh.

  6. And now it is hiding the ” “! *screams* are you trying to drive me nuts on my birthday huh? πŸ˜€

  7. The only hint of color in the picture is on the left railway. Did you manipulate that with a program? I love it πŸ™‚

    • YOU NOTICED! Yes, I exposed just that particular rail with a post production program. I do prefer my photos to display with little to no manipulation after I download them. But this one cried for the long rail to be more dramatic.
