Sunrise on the old Western Rail Road; Middlefield, Massachusetts.

Since 1841, the rails of the old Western Rail Road (later Boston & Albany, and for the time-being CSXT’s Boston Line) have served as a conduit of commerce through the Berkshire Hills of western Massachusetts.

I made this photograph at sunrise using my FujiFilm X-T1 fitted with a Zeiss 12mm Touit lens and a graduated neutral density filter to control contrast.

My friend Mel Patrick has often posed the question: ‘must all railroad photos show trains?’

Exposed in May 2016 using FujiFilm X-T1 digital camera with 12mm Zeiss lens.

  1. That looks to be a wonderfully remote area . That is the spot one could spend a lot of time just reflecting between trains! Nice spot and nice shot !!

  2. Middlefield is a special place for me too. I have had some sudden desire to go there. Must be ESP.
