Bridge Detail- Trains Thursday

Bridge Detail
Originally uploaded by Gene Bowker
Railroads provide many interesting photographic subjects beyond the engines and cars themselves.

Railroads constructed many elaborate bridges across the United States which still serve today. The Iron and Steel work provides interesting angles and contrasts.

This shot was taken along the Savannah River in Augusta, Georgia. The bridge carries the Norfolk Southern Railroad into downtown Augusta where it runs in the middle of the street for several blocks before reaching the yard.

The trains pass the Augusta History Museum which houses a nice railroad display including a retired Steam Locomotive in all it's glory.

The Riverwalk also provides many photographic opprotunities of boats, water, flowers, and birds. Worth a visit if you are in the area.
