this is just terrific. The way the mist hides masks the vanishing point makes this seem very mysterious.

Very cool fog and it really lends itself well to the disappearing tracks. Terrific perspective, the curvature creates a natural movement from the front to the back. Also I really like how the two tracks slowly come together to break up the pattern giving even more interest. Terrific shot and congrats on the placement and score.

This is a nice spooky, moody shot - expect a ghost train to appear at any moment.

Bob, I knew this was yours (or I had a pretty strong hunch) when voting, and I knew it would place in the top ten (or had a pretty strong hunch!)
You blew this one out of the box. Congrats, congrats, congrats. Adding to my faves.

Woo hoo! Top ten! Big congratulations, Bob. Terrific photo. Looks like a scary place to be -- no place to step off if a train comes. The double vanishing (perspective and fog) really makes the shot.

Love the double use of the converging lines and the fog... Lucky timing or is there always fog there?
