"Off the rails I was, and off the rails I was happy to stay. Get out of my way" --Morrissey

You seem to be the master of angle and framing. I love the way the RR bridge slants across the picture, with earth below and sky above. Jazz guitarist Wes Montgonery once had an album called "Down Here On The Ground" which i thought was a neat title. This picture seems to divide the "down here" from the "upper realms" with an unforgiving steel barrier. Or maybe I'm just being a poet.

Fantastic!!! Sky in monochrome is always a great capture:)

Sometimes black and white images do more to dramatize the sky than any number of color versions. This is just terrific--moody, suggestive, and evocative of a noir novel.
