“Concrete and Steel Sunset”

Guest post by Frederick Manfred Simon.

April 14, 2017

The sun has turned her back on the day as she always does. Taking back what she had given freely only hours ago. Yet the scene plays nicely to a Zwielicht capture though pushing the limits of limited light necessitating a high ISO to record this “grainy” concrete and steel, pinkish-salmon like sunset image of an eastbound Eastern Washington Gateway Railroad grain train slipping and snaking between the monolithic mortar elevators through the downgrade S-curve at Govan just as one of the less than five residents passes me with a curious stare, obviously wondering what in the world I’m doing only to realize – no doubt – the object of my focus when she meets and waits for the train to pass at the next and last bucked “town” grade crossing.
