Rail Trail Views

This is an old railroad bed behind my house that is being converted to a rail trail,and like I mentioned in the past,they are planning to fill it in to bring it to the level of the road behind were I am standing to shoot this. I put on my muck boots,headed into the swamp and tried to light paint the scene. The leaves were sitting in puddles that were at least 8 inches deep and I liked the way they were layered in there so I took a shot. My boots actually stuck fast twice and I literally walked right out of them in my socks into the muck. I think it’s a gem of natural beauty but elected officials have decided to fill it in ,so I am trying to document it so years from now when people want to see what we had and lost,there will be a record.
