That's what I call snaking

I followed the rather pretty train picture (the train is pretty - the picture is nothing special) here and found myself browsing through mostly very tedious – well, "specialist interest" – train photos here.

But this picture is very fine, I think:

It's the way the train is so long, and, given the snakelike nature of the track, so very snakey. The train itself is nothing special. The track is the track. But putting the two together gets a photo that I do admire.

Okay, the next posting will about oil paintings by a dead person, or some such thing.
