I know I’ve said it many times before in this blog, but if you don’t know it, I love trains. My father and I built a model train town on a balsa-wood table when I was growing up and I’ve loved the rails ever since. So Dad, these train pics are in your honor.

An abandoned train on the mountainside in Ella, Sri Lanka
This photo was captured from a moving Sri Lankan train traveling at around 50kph through the mountains of Hill Country. It was just sitting there, beautifully decaying on the side of the tracks. Whether this train crashed or was just abandoned I will never know. Lens: Nikon 50mm f/1.8 Exposure: 1/4000 sec Aperture:f/2.5 Focal Length: 50 mm ISO Speed: 320
