After shooting some family portraits at the abandoned train tracks I felt a pull to return and capture some of the details and mood of the area without people. As luck would have it my wife and I were both home on Halloween morning and after we watched our daughter march in her school Halloween parade we headed back to the tracks across from Draper City park. Despite some very near freezing temperatures at the beginning I got down and low to the iron to capture a few shots.
A friendly photo tip: Don’t touch cold train tracks without gloves…just saying!
I’d had an idea for an image in my head ever since my first visit to this amazing place and I tried a few variations on it. The idea was a leaf on the tracks…
and my final attempt at the concept:
So as teased here are some BTS shots taken by my wife with her point and shoot. I apologize for the unsightly subject matter…

Thanks for stopping by to look, I really appreciate it. I had such a good time shooting here even though the light was harsh, and the ground was cold it was rejuvenating to sit, walk and explore pictures within nature amid the relics of men, all while in the great company of my beautiful wife. I hope to get back soon hopefully when there is snow on the ground as I think the possibilities will be limitless.
