Ratliff's Ferry

Post by minniev »

I never seem to find a way to satisfactorily photograph this local ruin of an old railroad bridge, built on the ruins of a ferry landing. Now we've added the ruins of a dock to the collection. Failing a proper composition, I've attempted an abstract-ish version.

you need to be in the ruins of an old rowboat - Zeke and Gene will save you if things get dicey!

Seriously, that old stone in the mist/fog, looks very cool.

I love shooting in fog, wish we got it more often around here.

Thanks. It seems awkward, but I've never found a suitable solution there. Maybe if I had a drone...

I would kill a drone I’m sure, same as son.

There's something interesting here that keeps my attention and I must say the processing adds to the image. Well done! S-
