Every week for Throwback Thursday we’ll post an image from the (slowly uploading) archive – a scanned slide or still – I took from one of my family adventures as a kid to the wilds of Yellowstone and the Canadian Rockies, or from my trips as a teen to the Great Bear Rainforest to help document the spirit bear.
Today’s photo: Ribbon of Steel
Let me be clear: this photo was an error.
I was setting up to take a photo of a CP Rail train coming around Banff National Park’s famed Morant’s Curve when I accidentally took this extremely underexposed image of the setting sun and the illuminated tracks.
But when the slides were developed, for some reason, this ‘bad’ shot spoke to me more than my ‘good’, properly exposed photo of the train rounding the curve.
Maybe most readers will disagree, but I hope you like this shot of golden light on Canada’s ribbon of steel.
