Photo of the Week: Southbound CSX at Sunset


Photo by Alex Teitelbaum/

"I took this shot on a late August evening. On my drive home from work, I saw what appeared to be an interesting sky and the potential for a nice sunset. I grabbed my gear and went out to the public boat ramp in Perryville to see what would develop. The scene on the bridge fell onto my lap as the southbound CSX slowed to a crawl as it started to cross the bridge in the middle of the best part of the sunset, allowing me to capture this scene."
