Romantic Railway Poland

I exposed this timeless scene on a rural Polish branch line at Blotnica south of Wolsztyn on the 25th of April 2002.

John Gruber, Ross Valentine and I were on a week long photo escapade aiming to capture steam operations.

Some times the most effective railway photos don’t feature a train.

    I agree that some super photos don’t have trains – this scene rally is timeless – could have been 100 years ago! Timing is everything, and in this case perhaps a lot of luck – how many horse drawn farm wagons are still used in Poland? Perhaps a lot, but I suspect not.

    Even more extraordinary would have been for an East German Trabant to appear going the other way, as happened to me on a visit to Poland! But it would have actually spoiled the timeless rural charm of the image achieved.

    This is a truly affecting scene; the color saturation is amazing!
