Entry Description

While on a trip, I came upon this old train trestle no longer in use over the Missouri river. I spent 2 days trying to find decent vantage points to show this once great trestle as it should be. It was difficult at best. I've always been one to push the limits to get the shot I want and would say the 4th one in this series was the most precarious and dangerous to capture to date.

About Photographer

I grew up in a home full of cameras, yet it wasn't until much later in life that the photography bug bit me. Natural light brings everything alive when I view it through my camera, the shadows and light can be quite dramatic, which often leads me to capturing the moment. Have always been fond of B&W images and now find that transcends through many of my own images. This new journey has been mainly one self taught, with some classes and help from many, through frustration, failures and successes. It is a dream that photography will take me on an adventure of a lifetime.
