Looking at the river

Posted by Bruce (Tacoma, United States) on 18 April 2018 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

We were up in Sequim WA and I found this view from the Railroad Bridge.

Grading for the the Railroad Bridge and the railroad bed started in January 1914, from the west side of the river with equipment and materials brought by ships and barges to Port Angeles. The Chicago, Milwaukee, and St Paul Railway, later called the Milwaukee Road, built the bridge. The timber for the bridge was cut at railroad saw mills maybe in the northwest but possibly in the Midwest.

Railroad Landmark Tour – In its heyday, the Milwaukee Road carried both freight and passengers. It transported logs from Twin Rivers, Elwha and Joyce; manganese from the Crescent mine, manufactured product from Port Angeles, lumber from Carlsborg, and manufactured and farm products from Sequim.

I appreciate all the comments – I find them very encouraging. My primary photography is flowers and landscapes along with my grandkids.

Most of my photos are, “as they were taken.” I do work with lighting or darkening them in many cases (and sometimes I will sharpen them) but I try not to use too much “photo-shopping” If I do adjust them – I try to mention it.

My goal is to I try to keep my photography as photography and not turn it into art. While I do love the retouched photos, I personally think they become art and not photography – just my opinion.
