Photo of the Week: Amazing Textures of an Old Oak Tree
The Kyle Line is world famous and is ranked as one of the top ten railway journeys. The section from Achnasheen to Kyle is particularly spectacular, especially where it hugs the coast, an amazing feat of engineering at the time it was created. This shot was captured at the level crossing at Duirinish Station, looking into the setting sun with the amber light reflected perfectly on the converging lines of the rails disappearing into the distance. It was a challenge to balance the exposure, looking straight at the sun, but I under-exposed the image knowing I could recover some of the detail in the darker areas since I was shooting in RAW and it worked out well.
