This is a consummate piece of Natures Beauty dancing with the Machines of Men. Viewers who have been close to trains, or listened off into the distance as they have passed thru the periphery, hear the sound of this train rushing thru the forest. Really excellent visceral composition, with keen sense of the colors of Autumn.
Was it just the fortunate timing of the shot, or the intelligent planning to get train car with a door open, either way, it works in a powerful way.
The beauty of the natural stage has a strong contrast with the dark impenetrable sight of the darkness travel in the rail car.
Powerful symbolism for the effects of mans path thru nature.
Thanks for sharing this Deviation with all of us here at DA.
Wow, nicely captured. Just rode in on a train last weekend for the Mocca Fest in NYC. Good fun, but all I could think while riding is if I had the right camera. There was so much beautiful scenery, and of course New York itself never fails to deliver.
