My Trek 7200FX along the Kenosha, WI breakwater.     October 26, 2015

Canon PowerShot S95  f/7.1 at 1/100 sec   6.0mm  ISO 80  Three bracketed exposures (+2.33, 0.33, -1.67 EV) Processed from RAW by Photomatix Essentials 4 

Photos Taken on Railroad Tracks

While reviewing and voting for photos in GuruShots and other photography web site, I am amazed with the number of photos taken on and around active railroad tracks.

There have been portraits taken between the rails. There have been folks walking railroad trestles; photos taken where people are just walking down the tracks.

My customers were several railroads. I developed a healthy respect for railroad equipment and tracks. They are NOT places for a casual photo shoot!   Photography around active railroad tracks is dangerous. 

As such, I will NOT vote for photos taken on or around active railroad tracks, and you should not, either!
