About This Blog

I began this blog in 2011 in an attempt to improve my photography and showcase all of California's 58 counties. I didn't quite make all of the 58, I missed three and I will try to rectify that in the coming year. I'm not sure how much I improved my photography because I always seemed to be in a rush.
In 2012 I plan to take more time, perhaps not post every day (this is one thing I did accomplish in 2011). I also plan to expand beyond California and include images from other parts of Western United States. I will continue to include a map showing where I was when I took the picture. I will keep commentary to a minimum, long photo essays will continue to be at Martha's Musings.

You got there just in time to catch some great light! And I definitely would have pulled over to photograph this - or even gone out of my way to see it!

Nifty, Martha, and "double-cross" really tells it like it is. LOL
I agree with Lesley, the light is perfect!

I love that kind of thing. I drive my wife crazy when I sit and ponder just what was going through the engineer's mind on a double cross and what the alternatives might have been and why they might have rejected them and how they might have limited themselves in the future by the course they took.

Usually I conclude that what they did was the best thing, given the constraints. I've worked with railroads crossing them with pipelines and I will tell you that they are very arrogant and will not work with other companies, government agencies, or anybody else unless they are forced to.

There is a triple cross in Oklahoma City (train, city street, freeway) that I find absolutely fascinating. The wife makes sure we never get close when we are in the city.

Fabulous perspective of an unusual site.

I very much like the angle you shot this from, Martha! The metal looks quite silvery in this light.
