Ruinous Landscape with Pan Am Railways 22K; Wires, Poles and Roads.

 Are these elements insidious intrusions or compositional aids?

The other day I was inspecting a nature photography magazine. Each and every photograph featured a stunning landscape free from the hand of man. Waterfalls and luscious skyscapes, arctic views and verdant forests.

Nowhere were there poles, wires, or tarmac roads. This magazine had portrayed a world free from industry, electricity, commerce, and railways!

Fear not good citizen! Tracking the Light will fill these photographic omissions!

Take for example these images of Pan Am Railways/Norfolk Southern’s intermodal train symbol 22K, photographed in November 2015 near its Ayer, Massachusetts terminal.

A ruinous landscape? Just imagine this scene free from roads, wires, and the hand of man. What would be left to photograph?

Here's a similar view of Pan Am Railways/Norfolk Southern symbol freight 22K at Ayer. Exposed with my Fuji X-T1 digital camera.
