Journey: Train Reflection

Train Reflection

A couple of weeks ago, I took a railway trip from Celle in Germany, where I am currently working, to Wiesbaden for a business meeting. I had my trusty D70 with me and took the opportunity with the various changes of train to take some photographs.

This set is a different style to those I have posted before, a little more abstract and odd than some of the chocolate box stuff I have presented previously.

The first image is a train standing in Wiesbaden railway station reflecting the surroundings - it is difficult to see what is train and what is the world.

You have such a great eye for what will make an interesting shot. I love the 'unexpected' capture. (P.S. that is the shiniest train I've ever seen! lol.)

The reflections make the train appear to be in motion! The green in the center is great.

Great shot. I like the way, the red disappears and only blue-green exist..

Nicely spotted. German trains are obviously much shinier than their British counterparts!

Excellent eye. This photo makes me want to sing "On a clear day, you can see forever"

Definitely not your everyday reflective shot. It's pretty amazing how shiny that thing is! Would have been interesting to see how this same scene would look were the train in motion with a low shutter speed (just a thought).

Thank you all - the reflection is what attracted me.

tai - I agree this would have made a great shot, but this was also the train I had to catch! :-)

Ahhh....I love this one, Ian! Gorgeous lines and colors, and I love the yellow-shirted fellow on the bench reflected in the middle...

This is very neat, I can't stop staring at it. I totally love reflection shots and you really have this one down! It's almost three pictures in one. ;-)
I am really enjoying the lines of blue and green though!

The best photos are like that: something that we see everyday, but we don't notice its beauty.

I love reflections and they way they trick the eye. They challenge our ability to know reality.

This is a really nice shot. I work for a train manfuacturer so I've seen lots of pics of trains, metros, tramways, etc., and this can compare with any of them!

That's nifty. Just because it's an every day life moment and the reflections, lines and colours draw in and you just wonder about the beauty of it all.

Thanks for reminding me. Beautiful picture!
