Disappears around the bend


My tour guides took me to see the Kinsol Trestle, which is one of the highest railway trestles in the world, coming in at 44m tall. The trestle was operational from 1920 to 1979, and has been recently restored. But for now it’s for feet, not trains: it’s part of the Trans-Canada Trail.

  1. This is a very nice point of view. I did not get any shots here that I was really happy with, but I would have been very happy had I taken this one.


    • Thanks, Ehpem. The reason you didn’t get any shots that you were happy with is because you were too busy making fun of me re. getting close to the edge of the trestle. Karma, my friend, karma!

      • Oh yeah, I forgot about that part. The only reason I was teasing you was so you would not notice that it was giving me the creeps too…. The creeps might be the real reason I did not get a good enough shot – not relaxed enough.


  2. This is just marvellously composed—well done! Especially nice in sepia, too. I’m a colour lover, but often find that making an image monochrome is a vast improvement.


    • Thanks, Jen. One of the things I liked about the monochrome version of this one is the way the texture of the vertical parts of the handrails matched the texture of the trees. That didn’t show up in color.


  3. Superb composition and perspective, Melinda!
